What is dementia ?

A chronic or progressive syndrome, dementia is characterized by a gradual and above average decline in cognitive function in the elderly. It particularly affects memory, attention, reasoning, orientation, comprehension, language, and judgment. Dementia is one of the leading causes of disability and dependency among the elderly in the world. This disorder is usually due to diseases or injuries affecting the brain (brain damage, damage to blood vessels, etc.) or to external factors such as alcoholism, drug abuse, or vitamin B12 deficiency.

Different forms of dementia

Dementia can manifest itself in many forms. At the origin of 60 to 70% of cases, Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of this pathology. Vascular dementia (15 to 30% of cases) is also distinguished, leading to a deterioration of cognitive capacity and memory. Lewy body dementia manifests itself by abnormal deposits of proteins forming inside the brain cells. Frontotemporal dementia results in degeneration of the frontal lobes of the brain. There is no clear boundary between different forms of dementia, which often results in mixed disorders.
