Dementia is already established as a common disease in our society.. On the other hand, surprisingly few people are interested in active management and treatment.. As the elderly population increases due to the aging society, accurate understanding of the symptoms of dementia and health management are essential..

Dementia is characterized by memory loss and speech‧A condition in which cognitive function declines, making it difficult to perform daily activities. Early detection and initiation of treatment are important. However, Most early symptoms of dementia are natural aging‧It is often mistaken for forgetfulness, and the treatment time is missed..

Dementia is different from aging phenomena such as forgetfulness and must be clearly distinguished.. Forgetfulness can forget details of events, but, I remember the whole incident well.. Dementia, on the other hand, is often unable to remember the entire event..

In addition, Forgetfulness is when people around you outline what happened, you remember it again.. But people with dementia don’t remember it. As a result, many people do not recognize or deny the fact that they are dementia patients, so they do not feel the need for treatment.. If memory impairment worsens over several months or is accompanied by decreased judgment, it may be a prognostic symptom of dementia..

The main causes of dementia are degenerative brain disease known as Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia. Alzheimer’s disease progresses as the brain’s nerve cells slowly decline. The rate of progression of the disease is slower than that of vascular dementia, so the disease is often detected and advanced to a large extent.

In contrast, vascular dementia‧Sudden damage to brain cells, such as a stroke. Patients with a history of cerebrovascular disease should pay attention to prevention of vascular dementia by improving their daily lifestyle.

Dementia treatment includes pharmacological treatment and cognitive interventional treatment, which is non-drug treatment.. Medication relieves symptoms of dementia, The goal is to slow the progression of the disease. In addition, cognitive interventional therapy is a treatment that improves cognitive functions such as memory and language skills, which have been deteriorated by dementia, through training.. It has the advantage of having relatively few side effects., Helps delay the worsening of symptoms in patients who are already developing cognitive impairment.
