Dementia

Dementia is a loss of mental skills—such as memory, problem solving, and learning—that's bad enough to interfere with your daily life. It usually gets worse over time. But how long this takes is different for each person.

There are medicines you can take for dementia. They don't cure it, but they can slow it down for a while and make it easier to live with.
