Journey to Healthy Aging: Dementia
Self- Directed Learning
The term “dementia”, can be thought of as an umbrella term under which many different causes of dementia can fall. The four types of dementia seen most often are Alzheimer’s Disease, Vascular Dementia, Dementia with Lewy Bodies, and Frontotemporal Dementia. Often, the course of Alzheimer's type dementia is categorized according to mild, moderate, or severe, but there are a number of cognitive assessment tools that can be used to stage cognitive impairment.
