2 doctors agree

In brief: Different focus

Presenile dementia is early memory and other higher cogn process loss.
Amnesia is only memeory based losses(several types), and delerium is a clouding of all cogn processes, more confusion-like sx and typically more acute and often toxin/metabolic related-and is an emergency.
