Service Definitions

A common form of dementia of unknown cause, usually starting in late middle age. It is characterized by memory lapses, confusion, emotional instability and progressive loss of mental ability. It is named after Alois Alzheimer, German neurologist, who described it in 1907.
Dementia is characterised by confusion, memory loss, poor problem-solving and poor concentration. There are many diseases that lead to dementia, the most common being Alzheimer's disease. Dementia usually occurs in older people. Dementia in people under 65 is known as early onset dementia. Dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) is a rarer form of dementia that shares characteristics with both Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases. Vascular dementia occurs when cells in the brain are deprived of oxygen. Many symptoms are the same as other forms of dementia, however there are some differences.
Old age consists of ages nearing the average lifespan of human beings, and thus the end of the human life cycle. Euphemisms for older people include advanced adult, elderly, and senior or senior citizen. Older people have limited regenerative abilities and are more prone to disease, syndromes, and sickness than other adults.
