Dementia & Alzheimer’s

Dementia is a health condition that is actually an illness of the brain. It is not, as is generally believed, an illness where the brain stops functioning. Instead, brain cells are damaged and therefore, die earlier than they should, thereby causing the brain to work with decreased efficiency.

Over a long period of time, the efficiency of the brain is lowered to an extent, which causes a patient to not be able to do even the most general jobs.

Dementia first affects the memory part of the brain, causing a person to first forget names and then even forget who they are or where they are. Dementia patients may become almost lifeless in the later stages and then may require help with washing, eating, etc. They tend to lose interest in all activities and may repeat a question over and over again.
