Dementia is a chronic brain disorder, caused by either an injury or a type of brain disease. Dementia is not one specific disease, but a term associated with a constant, steady decline in mental ability as you age. While Alzheimer’s is the most commonly recognized type of dementia, there are other conditions that can cause similar symptoms. There is no current cure for dementia, and symptoms often get worse over time, which can make caring for a loved one with dementia exhausting at times.

Dementia Warning Signs

If your loved one has not been diagnosed with dementia, but you suspect they may be at risk, pay attention to the following warning signs:

  • Memory loss
  • Impaired communication skills
  • Impaired vision and perception
  • An increased inability to pay attention
  • Misplacing items more frequently
