Dementia is an umbrella term for several neurodegenerative disorders affecting an individual’s memory, other cognitive abilities and behaviour, and capacity to carry out normal day-to-day activities.
Multiple conditions are known to cause dementia, amongst which Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type of dementia. Having multiple types of dementia at once is common and is referred to as ‘mixed’ dementia (for example, Alzheimer’s disease and Frontotemporal dementia).
Due to the many different types of dementia, and the fact that many people experience mixed dementia (that is, not just one specific type of dementia but rather a combination of sub-types), signs and symptoms vary from person to person.
Although ageing is considered to be the strongest predictor of developing cognitive decline and dementia, dementia does not occur simply because we grow older. There is no single factor responsible for causing dementia, rather there are a wide variety of genetic and environmental factors contributing towards susceptibility for developing dementia.
