Dementia is an age related neurodegenerative condition, characterised by failure of recent memory and intellectual functions (attention, language, visual-spatial orientation, abstract thinking, judgement), and tends to progress steadily. These changes are due to the mounting dysfunction and death of brain cells, called neurons, that are responsible for the storage and computation of information. Late stages of the disease often see patients bedridden, mute and incontinent.
