Dementia

Dementia is not a single disease in itself, but a general term to describe symptoms of impairment in memory, communication, and thinking. While the likelihood of having dementia increases with age, it is not a normal part of aging. Light cognitive impairments, such as poorer short-term memory, can happen as a normal part of aging. This is known as age-related cognitive decline rather than dementia because it does not cause significant problems. Dementia describes two or more types of symptom that are severe enough to affect daily activities. An analysis of the most recent census estimates that 4.7 million people aged 65 years or older in the United States were living with Alzheimer's disease in 2010 Japan is facing a worsening health crisis where more of its aging population is expected to be diagnosed with dementia over the next several years. The AFP news agency is reporting that, by 2025, around 7.3 million Japanese residents, or 20 percent of seniors over the age of 65, will suffer from dementia based on figures from the health ministry. The current number of people with the disorder is estimated to be at least 4.6 million nationally and 44 million globally.
