In brief: Dementia

Dementia is a syndrome characterised by memory loss and its impact on the persons ability to function independently.
Common causes of dementia include alzheimers disease, stroke, parkinsons disease , lewy body dementia and others. A full medical and cognitive assessment should be done to assess for potential "reversible" causes of memory loss.
