Dementia is a complex and challenging condition that affects millions of individuals worldwide. It’s not a singular disease but rather an umbrella term for various cognitive impairments that interfere with one’s daily life and ability to function independently. Alzheimer’s, vascular dementia, Lewy body dementia, and frontotemporal dementia are among the most common forms. As dementia progresses, it profoundly impacts memory, thinking, language, behavior, and emotional well-being. Early symptoms may include forgetfulness, difficulty finding words, confusion, and disorientation. Individuals with dementia often require specialized care and support as their cognitive abilities decline, and families can feel overwhelmed as they navigate this emotional journey.
