Dementia Treatment and Prevention in Phoenix, AZ.
Dementia is a disease that affects over 60 million people, with this number expected to increase dramatically in the next 10 years.
Many people are now coming to understand that dementia is not a normal part of aging.
It’s an umbrella term that describes a wide range of symptoms associated with a decline in memory or other thinking skills severe enough to reduce a person’s ability to perform everyday activities. The most common types of dementia are Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia, in that order.
Many researchers have begun to focus on early stage dementia, highlighting the need for early stage detection and prevention and intervention.
It is estimated that around 200,000 people in the United States have an early onset form of dementia. This number is expected to grow substantially secondary to the aging to the population (i.e., baby boomer generation) and prolongation of life expectancy.
