Dementia causes problems with thinking, memory, and reasoning
“It happens when the parts of the brain used for learning, memory, decision making, and language are damaged or diseased.”
Also called major neurocognitive disorder, it's not a disease itself. Instead, it's a group of symptoms caused by other conditions.
Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of dementia. Between 60% to 80% of people with dementia have Alzheimer's. But there are as many as 50 other causes of dementia.
The symptoms of dementia may improve with treatment.
