Meet Our Dementia Specialists In The Loop
Dementia encapsulates a wide range of signs and symptoms that all affect a decline in memory, thinking capabilities, problem-solving skills, social communication and interactions. A person suffering from dementia is typically experiencing a great enough decline in these functions, that their daily life and routines are impacted significantly. Dementia is not categorized as a disease itself, but rather the result from other brain-functioning diseases. Learning how to cope with dementia for yourself or someone you are close to is important for retaining and maintaining relationships and levels of normalcy.
