In brief: Memory is first

By definition, if you have dementia you have a problem with memory.
Other symptoms include problems with language, trouble using objects like tools, trouble evaluating and processing information, trouble knowing that you have deficits. Other types of symptoms include delusions, hallucinations, depression, anxiety, aggression, disinhibition, irritability and mood lability.
