What is dementia?

Dementia is a collection of symptoms related to the decline in memory and mental abilities — it is not a condition in and of itself.

There are many forms and causes of dementia — the two main forms being Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia (which occurs following a stroke).

In order to qualify as dementia, a person’s life must be significantly impacted by the impairment of at least two of these mental functions:

  • Judgment / reasoning
  • Memory
  • Communication
  • Attentiveness / focus
  • Visual perception

Sabina has been an absolute life saver for my family. She is fantastic with my dad who can be a challenge. Not only does she provide great care for him but the house is always sparkling after her visit as she takes it upon herself to clean while my father sleeps.
