    Dementia is a syndrome in which there is deterioration in cognitive function beyond what
    might be expected from the usual consequences of biological aging. Dementia is caused by
    damage to brain cells. This damage interferes with the ability of brain cells to communicate with
    each other. When brain cells cannot communicate normally, thinking, behavior and feelings can
    be affected.
    Decline in thinking skills, also known as cognitive abilities, severe enough to impair daily
    life and independent function. They also affect behavior, feelings, and relationships. Dementia
    may cause people to feel insecure and lose confidence in themselves and their abilities. They
    may feel they are no longer in control and may not trust their own judgement. People with
    dementia often experience changes in their emotional responses. They may have less control
    over their feelings and how to express them. For example, someone may overreact to things,
    have rapid mood changes, or feel irritable. They may also appear unusually distant or
    uninterested in things. People with dementia tend to be at a high risk of falling. They are more
    than three times more likely to fracture their hip when they fall, which leads to surgery and
    Memory loss in a person with dementia is persistent and progressive (it continues to get
    worse), not just occasional. It may affect a person’s ability to continue to work or carry out
    familiar tasks. It may mean having difficulty finding the way home. Eventually, it may mean
    forgetting how to dress or how to bathe. There are approximately 50 million people living with
    dementia worldwide and this is set to increase to 75 million by 2030 and 131.5 million by the
    year 2050. This increase in the number of people living with dementia is primarily thought to be
    due to improving healthcare.
    Better healthcare must lead to an increased life expectancy, therefore there is a greater
    proportion of older people worldwide. The rising number of people affected by dementia and the
    increasing cost have led to several countries developing national dementia strategies. These
    strategies include the need for a health and social care workforce that is appropriately trained and
    skilled to deliver good dementia care.
