Dementia refers to the loss of cognitive functions (thinking, reasoning, the ability to remember) that are severe enough to interfere with a person’s daily functioning. This group of symptoms is not a disease in themselves, but may accompany certain diseases or conditions.
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia. It is a progressive, degenerative disease of the brain characterized by loss of function and death of nerve cells in several brain areas, leading to loss of recent memories and new learning first, and eventually long-term memories, too.
