What is dementia?
If your friend or loved one is living with dementia, they’re not alone. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), about 47 million people worldwide have some form of dementia. The condition affects an estimated five to six percent of the world’s population aged 60 and above, and almost 10 million new cases are diagnosed each year.

Forms of dementia
Dementia is most widespread among the elderly population, although it can affect young people as well. That’s because not all types of dementia are caused by age-related symptoms. Treatment depends on the type of dementia the individual has. Here are some of the most common forms of dementia, courtesy of the Alzheimer’s Association.
