Wednesday February 28, 2024 - 10:00 a.m.

Dementia is an overall term for a set of symptoms that are caused by disorders affecting the brain. Symptoms may include memory loss, experiencing difficulties with problem-solving, and language that is severe enough to impact a person’s ability to perform everyday activities independently. A person living with dementia may also experience changes in mood or behaviour. Dementia is progressive, which means the symptoms will gradually get worse as more brain cells become damaged and eventually die. The most common types of dementia are Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia (due to recurring strokes). Some of the other types of dementia include Lewy Body dementia, Frontotemporal dementia, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, Parkinson’s disease, and Huntington disease. These conditions can have similar and overlapping symptoms. Join us on the 28th to discuss dementia and learn about how it may impact you or someone you love.
