  • Dementia

    An 8 page research paper on dementia. Dementia is often regarded by the general public to be a common, and therefore, a “normal,” part of aging. However, dementia is not normal, but is, rather, a pathological condition that prevents individuals who develop this neurological disorder from living autonomously and fully. Individuals suffering from dementia often become a burden on their families, as their loss of cognitive function makes independent living in older years impossible. It is important to accurately diagnose and treat dementia in order to provide a level of care that will facilitate, to the greatest extent possible, older individuals retaining autonomy and a high quality of life. In other words, knowledge of the various types of dementia and the nature of dementia is essential to providing a high level of care and in making decisions associated with the care of dementia patients.
