Dementia describes multiple symptoms and conditions. It might cause a person to have impaired judgement and memory loss.

Alzheimer’s and LBD are some of the most common types of dementia that families experience in the United States. The degenerative nature of these diseases means that a loved one’s need for care can change drastically in a short amount of time. This makes having the right team to care for them incredibly important.
Alzheimer’s disease might be the most well-known form of dementia. Unfortunately, its causes and cure remain a lot more elusive than its reputation. What is known about Alzheimer's is that it causes the degradation of a person’s brain cells. With time, the disease causes a person to lose physical and cognitive functions.
Lewy Body Dementia (LBD)
A person suffering from LBD might show symptoms many associate with Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease. However, some patients with LBD experience intense and life-like hallucinations. Ultimately, those with LBD might begin to show aggression, tremors, depression, and have an increased risk of falling.
