In brief: Clarification needed

Aids is someone who have advanced diseases of HIV positive individuals with worsening of symptoms, including dementia.
Any change of personality, memory loss or/and loss of functional activity such as bathing, dressing result hiv-related dementia. The new onset of dementia varies by age and the severity of HIV related symptoms. To my knowledge there is no term for aids dementia.

In brief: Less Common Now

Aids/hiv dementia occurs primarily in persons with more advanced HIV infection.
Symptoms vary greatly from person to person, and can include inflammation of the brain, behavioral changes, motor and coordination problems, and a gradual decline in cognitive function. With the advent of antiretroviral therapy, aids/hiv dementia has become less common.
