Dementia is more than memory loss.


In fact, for some types of dementia, memory loss doesn't become relevant until later stages.


Here are some of the things dementia can impact:

  • Memory
  • Problem-solving abilities
  • Basic, abstract, and critical thinking skills
  • Impulse control
  • Judgment and insight
  • Reasoning
  • Planning
  • Attention span
  • Language skills
  • Comprehension skills
  • Behavior, personality, mood
  • Coordination and motor functions
  • All of the senses
  • Perception
  • Spatial skills


Why? Because dementia is impacting the brain and as we know — the brain controls EVERYTHING.
