Dementia is an umbrella term that refers to a syndrome of cognitive function deterioration that goes beyond what would be expected from the normal effects of physiological ageing. The more recent guidelines for mental disorder assessment, the Fifth Edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), have renamed dementia neurocognitive disorder,” which is divided into different severity categories and aetiological factors. It is caused by many conditions, mainly those that have primary and secondary effects on the brain. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia, accounting for 60 to 70 per cent of cases.
