Dementia is not a specific disease. It’s an overall term that describes many causes with a wide range of symptoms associated with a decline in memory or other thinking skills severe enough to reduce a person’s ability to perform everyday activities. Caring for a person with dementia often involves a team of people. Whether you help provide the daily care, participate in the decision making, or simply care about a person with dementia, there’s much to do and plenty to know.  Listed below are several brochure links offered by the Alzheimer’s Association to offer tips and guidance in this area.
