Dementia is something that everyone gets with age. Some cases are severe while others are mild.
Dementia is a series of cognitive disorders which impact individual function through the brain. This can lead to decreased cognitive abilities, physical function and behaviours. Dementia is a personal and individualised condition, requiring expertise in care to ensure one’s well-being.
