What is Dementia?
Dementia encompasses a range of diseases that affect memory, thinking, behavior, and daily life, usually observed in individuals aged 85 and older. It is not a specific disease, but rather a description of mental function. Dementia can be caused by various conditions like Alzheimer's and vascular dementia, impacting memory, decision-making, and language.
