What is Dementia?

It’s important to start by correcting a common misperception – dementia is not just forgetfulness. It’s an acquired condition of intellectual deterioration which affects at least two areas of cognitive function, such as: being able to make a plan and carry it out; being able to weigh information and make good decisions; initiating activities; and being able to gauge appropriate social behaviour. People with dementia are often also affected by dramatic changes in personality.
