What Is the Difference Between Dementia and Alzheimer's Disease?

Last updated 6 years ago

Dementia is not a specific disease, but a very broad term encompassing a variety of diseases, including Alzheimer’s. Dementia indicates problems with certain brain functions that cause issues such as memory loss or impaired judgment.

This video describes the differences between dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s is a common cause of dementia, not a result from dementia. Certain causes of dementia can be treated or reversed if caught in time, whereas Alzheimer’s is irreversible.
