What is dementia? Dementia is a global deterioration of intellectual function due to the progressive atrophy of the central nervous system.

Dementia usually affects those aged 65 and over, and presents with a cluster of symptoms, including memory loss, confusion, and the potential for sudden changes in personality and mood (amongst others).

Although there is currently no cure for dementia, early diagnosis can enable the condition to be treated and managed in order to slow the progression of these symptoms.
