Dementia is a general term that describes a range of symptoms, affecting at least five million people in the US. Common symptoms include short-term memory, difficulties in performing daily activities, and inability to focus and pay attention.
Age-related dementia is progressive, meaning symptoms start gradually and get worse. Most people incorrectly refer to this type of disease as “senility,” which means that the serious mental decline is a normal part of aging. Memory loss is part of aging, but not dementia or Alzheimer’s.
If one of your family members has been diagnosed with dementia, seek assistance from Aspen Senior Day Center.
