What is dementia, and why is it difficult to tackle?
A majority of the people still, incorrectly think that dementia is simply a synonym for forgetfulness. It’s not—in fact, it’s actually much more than this common perception. Memory problems are really just a small component of dementia. In reality, communication hurdles, emotional and behavioral problems are also present within the scope of dementia.
Many caregivers are often surprised when they observe that their dementia patient is starting to show signs of other more complex problems. Here are some of the effects which make dementia a terrible syndrome:
- Deteriorations in memory, thoughts, behaviors, and actions.
- Behavioral problems leading to sexual aggression, hoarding, sleep deprivation, or wanderings.
- Emotional problems causing dementia patients to suffer from depression, frustration, and a clinging attitude.
- Disability or difficulties in performing everyday activities.
- Hallucinations and delusions are often a major result of developing advanced dementia.
- Alzheimer’s also contributes towards being a major cause of developing dementia (it contributes to about 60-70% of the cases).
- Dementia is one of the main causes of disability and dependency in all such patients globally.
- Dementia is the root cause of having physical, economic and psychological impacts on its patients, caregivers and their families worldwide.

What is Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease Care?
In general, dementia is a decline in mental ability, such as memory loss or an inability to complete familiar tasks, serious enough to interfere with a person’s daily life. Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia, accounting for 50 to 80 percent of dementia cases. Our services help people with these symptoms by focusing on their remaining abilities and strengths, while assisting with tasks that have become difficult for the client to perform.Contact Us
