Mental Decline and Aging
- Dementia is a symptom referring to mental decline. There are many diseases with dementia as a symptom, the most common being Alzheimer’s.
- If a person’s mental decline is mild, this can be age-associated memory loss. When the decline is more significant, it falls into a category called “Major Neurocognitive Disorder” and reflects a disease process.
- Dementia cannot be cured, but the progression can be slowed and delayed through lifestyle choices.
