It is estimated that 47 million people worldwide are currently living with dementia. Signs of dementia can include impaired focus, uncharacteristic mood changes, difficulty finding the right words to use, repetition of sentences and tasks, and short-term memory loss. Many patients with early dementias are unaware that they have any problem. As the disease progresses, behavioral changes can become evident. Dementia can progress to the person forgetting basic information about themselves, including their address or telephone number, or even their date of birth. Dementia is overwhelming not only for the people who have it, but also for their families trying to care for them.
