Ageing & Dementia

While some mild changes in cognition are considered a normal part of the aging process, dementia is not. Normal age-related declines are subtle and mostly affect the speed of thinking and intentional control. Although dementia is not an unavoidable consequence of ageing, increasing age is the biggest risk factor for having this disease. The prevalence of dementia increases exponentially with age and 95% of those with Alzheimer's disease, the most common form of dementia, are aged 65 or over.Ageing is a risk factor for dementia because dementia can take a long time to develop. This is because dementia is caused by diseases that damage the brain, such as Alzheimer's disease or vascular disease. It can take these diseases many years to damage the brain enough to cause the symptoms of dementia.
