Dementia is one of the most commonly misunderstood disorders affecting people today.

Frequently, people use the terms Alzheimer’s disease and dementia interchangeably, but Alzheimer’s disease does not account for the majority of incidences of dementia.

Dementia affects approximately 5 to 8 percent of people over the age of 65, and that percentage doubles with every 10 years of increased age, according to WebMD.

Dementia is characterized by confusion, forgetfulness, or other mental function problems that are sufficiently severe as to cause a disruption to daily life.
