Story
Introduction
Dementia is a decline of mental abilities such as thinking, reasoning and memory. Dementia usually occurs in older age; it is rare under the age of 60. It is serious enough to diminish everyday functions in a person’s life such as driving, everyday duties and even can effect the ADLs (Activities of Daily Living) like personal hygiene, dressing, and feeding. Many people mistake dementia as being a disease itself but it is actually a group of symptoms that occur with certain diseases or conditions.
