What does Dementia Care in
Oklahoma City consist of?
Dementia is an umbrella term for a range of progressive symptoms and conditions that affect the brain and memory.
Conditions grouped under the generalised term “dementia” are caused by abnormal changes to the brain. The brain is made up of billions of neurones (nerve cells) that communicate with each other through chemical signals. If a person has dementia, these neurones are damaged which means that these messages cannot be sent efficiently which in turn effects all functions of the body.
These effects on the body are often small to start with, but for someone with dementia they can become severe enough to affect daily life. The symptoms that someone with dementia experiences will greatly depend on two primary factors; the parts of the brain that are affected, and the disease that is causing the dementia. Consult The Alzheimer’s Association website for even more information.
