Dementia is a general term for loss of memory, language, problem-solving and other thinking abilities that are severe enough to interfere with daily life.
Dementia is caused by damage to or changes in the brain. Common causes of dementia are: Alzheimer’s disease. This is the most common cause of dementia.
Age is the biggest risk factor: most people with dementia are older than 65 and the likelihood increases as people get older into their 80’s and 90’s.
This tells us that older people are more likely to develop dementia than younger people.
