Dementia is not one single disease. It is the term used to describe the symptoms of a large group of illnesses which cause a progressive decline in a person’s functioning. It is not a normal part of ageing. Everyone experiences dementia differently. Your symptoms will depend on the cause of dementia and the parts of the brain affected.
