Dementia describes different brain disorders that trigger a loss of brain function. These conditions are all usually progressive and eventually severe.
Symptoms of dementia include memory loss, confusion and problems with speech and understanding. These changes are often small to start with, but for someone with dementia they have become severe enough to affect daily life.
A person with dementia may also experience changes in their mood or behaviour.
Dementia is caused when the brain is damaged by diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease or a series of strokes. Alzheimers-disease is the most common cause of dementia, but not the only one.
The specific symptoms that someone with dementia experiences will depend on the parts of the brain that are damaged and the disease that is causing the dementia.

To all the staff who helped nurse D, Thank you so much for all your care, your proffessionalism, your respect for dignity and your good humour. (Thank you also for the hugs C). I was really touched that so many of you attended D's funeral. He would have been so pleased. I hope you came away with the knowledge that D was a great man: a man with honour and love. He was everything to me and I miss him terribly. But as he would say "That's life - deal with it. Thank you once again, not only for your all your efforts on D's behalf, but also supporting me - especially when I was kranky through lack of sleep. You are a great team - the A-team (as D would say) and I am so grateful to you. Regards JR
