What’s the difference between Alzheimer’s and Dementia?

One of the most commonly asked questions in memory care is the difference between Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Though they are quite often (and mistakenly) used interchangeably, there are key differences that will help distinguish the two. Since approaches to Alzheimer’s and dementia care can also vary, it’s even more crucial for medical professionals, patients, and families to understand the differences. Dr. Richard London, Medical Director of Silverado Oak Village Community explains how they differ: What’s the difference between Alzheimer’s and Dementia?
Dementia is an umbrella term for the group of symptoms in which the human brain no longer processes information like it used to.  Symptoms can include impaired memory, forgetfulness, or difficulty carrying out day-to-day tasks like driving.  If a person is diagnosed with dementia, they are not diagnosed with a disease, but a set of symptoms.
Alzheimer’s disease is a very specific kind of dementia, and also the most common. Symptoms of Alzheimer’s include impaired thought, speech, or extreme disorientation.  At this time, there is no cure for Alzheimer’s, as it is degenerative and incurable.

Having Alzheimer’s disease knocked my mother off her life and had her living like a mad person, I didn’t know how the better part of her life eluded her, my mind was completely Having Alzheimer’s disease knocked my mother off her life and had her living like a mad person, I didn’t know how the better part of her life eluded her, my mind was completely splatted in two, She showed a severe decline in her mental and cognitive skills in the last few years and her quality of life had deteriorated greatly in the past 2 years where she was mostly bedridden. I am very glad my partner sought help and now she is free from all signs of psychosis. She was healed through the herbal medicines from Dr. Rohan (BRONGEE). I believe there is no act of kindness that is too small that is why I am sharing this testimony here. If you have anybody who is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, I will advise you to opt out from western medication and go for BRONGEE herbal medicine. you will have every reason to be happy again just as I am.
