Benefits of Early Intervention for Dementia
Dementia is a general term to describe a decline in mental ability which is severe enough to interfere with daily life. The brain cells of people with dementia die at a faster than normal rate leading them to lose their ability to remember, think and reason. As the condition advances, they may demonstrate personality and behavioral changes which impede them from coping with daily life. While the likelihood of having dementia increases with age, it is not part of normal ageing.
Dr Seng Kok Han, a Consultant Psychiatrist from Nobel Psychological Wellness Clinic, a member of Healthway Medical Group, speaks about dementia.
