Dementia is the general term for a group of brain disorders that causes memory problems and raises it hard to think clearly.

What symptoms does dementia cause?

The symptoms of dementia often start off very mild and get worse slowly. Symptoms can include:

  • Forgetting all sort things.
  • Confusion
  • Trouble with language ( for example, not being able to find the right words for things )
  • Trouble for concentrating and reasoning.
  • Problems with tasks such as paying bills or balancing a checkbook.
  • Getting lost in familiar places

As dementia gets worst, people might:

• Have episodes of anger and aggression

• See things that aren’t there or believe things that aren’t true

• Be unable to eat, bathe, dress or do other everyday tasks.

• Lose bladder and bowel control

What is mild cognitive impairment?

Mild cognitive impairment (MCO) is a brain disorder that causes trouble with memory or thinking. The word “cognitive” has to do with memory and thinking. The word “impairment” means having trouble doing something.

It is normal for adults to have slight memory problems as they get older. But the problems in MCI are more significant than those of normal aging. For example, you might forget things more often than before, or you might forget more important things.

Some people with MCI later develop a condition called “dementia” Dementia is the general term for a group of brain disorders that cause problems with memory and thinking.

Dementia is a more serious problem that MCI. People with MCI usually don’t have problems doing their daily tasks and activities. But people with dementia might not be able to do their daily task or activities correctly or at all.

What is it important to have an evaluation?

It’s important to have an evaluation because some memory and thinking problems can be treated. After treatment, the symptoms will often get better. Another reason evaluation is important is that some test can be repeated over time. This gives you and your doctor information about your condition. For example, if the tests show problems that are mild and not getting worse, that is a good sign. If the test shows problems that are getting worse over time, it could be a sign that you might be developing dementia. Dementia is the general term for a group of brain disorders, including Alzheimer disease, that affect memory and thinking. Although most forms of dementia cannot be treated. For example, if you know that your problems might affect certain daily tasks or activities, then you can get help in those areas. Plus, if you know that your condition is not likely to improve, you and your family can make plans for the future
