Dementia is a progressive disease of the brain that affects a person’s ability not only to remember people and experiences, but also how to do simple daily tasks. There are stages of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, with each requiring different levels of care and assistance. In the first couple of stages of dementia, a person may still be able to function independently despite some memory loss, but by the third and fourth stages of dementia, they will begin to need help with basic chores and getting around.
