Dementia is not a disease, but a mental condition brought on by a loss of multiple brain functions, such as loss of memory, language and problem solving. While many people experience issues like memory loss, those diagnosed with dementia experience a decline in mental function so severe that it interferes with common activities needed for daily living.
Dementia is common in aging populations with as many as 3 million new cases diagnosed every year. While there is no cure for dementia, early detection and treatment can help improve a patient’s quality of life.
