What is Dementia?

The first step to caring for Dementia is to understand it. Dementia is referred to as a group of diseases that affect the way people think and interact, arising due to damage sustained by the brain cells – Sometimes due to injuries and most commonly due to ageing. Individuals with Dementia suffer from short-term memory loss, mind, speech and motor skills. While the Dementia causing diseases can be treated to some extent, but it keeps on worsening with age. Individuals with Dementia require extensive care and round the clock monitoring. Dementia patients exhibit one or more such symptoms:

Deterioration of Problem-solving abilities
Loss of verbal communication
Behavioral changes including eating, dressing and interests
May become unable to perform household tasks
