In brief: Eventually impaires

All areas of function in this question eventually become effected more or less.
No one answer. The type of dementia plays a big role in these areas. Fronto-temp. Dementia often starts at earlier ages and is often mistaken as a primary psychiatric condition as cognition is relatively spared in early stages but behaviors may be very inappropriate. Disability may be needed which becomes another issue.
