Dementia VS Alzheimer's
Dementia can best be described as a non reversible decline in a person’s mental health function. Many people use the word Dementia to describe a person who had a serious memory loss or they have problems with being able to reason properly.
Dr. George Lyketsos who is a director of the John Hopkin’s Memory and Alzheimer’s Treatment Center in Baltimore says in order to be called Dementia the disorder must be severe enough that it interferes with you daily activities.
Alzheimer's on the other hand is a specific disease that has begun to destroy a person’s memory and thinking skills and it is usually permanent. Alzheimer’s will make it hard for the person who has it to do even very simple things.
