Understanding The Difference Between Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease
The word “dementia” is an umbrella term for anything that can cause issues with brain functioning such as confusion, memory loss, or loss of problem solving ability. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia in older persons.
The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke defines dementia as:
“… [A] word for a group of symptoms caused by disorders that affect the brain. It is not a specific disease. People with dementia may not be able to think well enough to do normal activities, such as getting dressed or eating. They may lose their ability to solve problems or control their emotions. Their personalities may change. They may become agitated or see things that are not there.“
Forms of Dementia:
- Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD)
- Dementia with Lewy Bodies
- Frontotemporal Dementia
- Huntington’s Disease
- Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Vascular Dementia
- Wernicke-Korsakoff Syndrome
Knowing the type of dementia your loved one had been diagnosed with is very important. Each type of dementia presents with different characteristics, requiring a specific type of care protocol. For example, those with frontal lobe dementia are prone to profound personality changes and can get very uninhibited and outrageous. Sufferers of Lewy Body dementia may have profound visual hallucinations, including talking to little people in the room or seeing animals that are not really present.
