Understanding Onset Dementia Symptoms

 

Dementia is a chronic disorder of the mental processes caused by brain disease or injury and marked by memory disorders, personality changes and impaired reasoning. There is a wide range of symptoms and causes, the most prevalent being a loss of short and long-term memory, and in the most severe cases, a loss of ability to perform day-to-day tasks. Early onset of the disease can begin when people are in their 30s, 40s, or 50s.
