Decline in the brain’s ability to an extent that starts to interfere with daily activities is termed as Dementia. Memory loss, communication problems, focus issues, visual perception loss is some symptoms noticed in dementia patients. The brain undergoes microscopic changes long before the early symptoms are seen. Alzheimer’s disease prevents the brain cells to operate as they should. As it spreads brain cells lose their ability to work. Day to day activities like keeping track of personal items, paying bills, preparing food, remembering appointments or the name of your neighbor etc. become difficult due to the disease. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia. Memory, thinking and behavior is affected in this disease. Around 60-80 percent of dementia cases are Alzheimer’s disease. It does not occur in the course of normal aging but it progresses with age. In early stages a mild loss in memory can be seen. As it progresses the person might lose his ability to communicate and respond to stimuli.
Early symptoms of the disease include difficulty in remembering newly acquired information. Disorientation, mood and behavior changes, unfounded suspicions, serious memory loss, difficulty speaking, swallowing and walking occur gradually. Early diagnosis and treatment can help in improving the quality of life of patients with Alzheimer’s. The disease cannot be cured but a treatment plan can be developed in accordance to the symptoms exhibited by the patient.

The term dementia is used to describe a pool of symptoms like memory loss, confusion, and mood and behaviour changes. Dementia can be caused due to a number of reasons of which Alzheimer’s disease is the most common.
Forgetting things occasionally cannot always be associated with Alzheimer's. in this disease the memory loss is more serious than forgrtting things occasionally. The memory loss in such cases starts to interfere with daily activities like getting lost when going to the corner shop.
