Dementia Care Certificate

What is Dementia?

Dementia refers to a group of symptoms that together affect the memory, normal thinking, communication, and reasoning ability of a person. These symptoms make it difficult to perform even daily simple tasks such as bathing and eating. Alzheimer’s disease is the main cause of the majority of cases of dementia. Dementia can’t be cured but there are medications to manage the symptoms.
