Dementia vs. Alzheimer’s Disease: What Is the Difference?
Presented by Richard E. Dowell, Jr. PhD, Neuropsychology and Meghan Penfield, PA-C
The terms “dementia” and “Alzheimer’s disease” can be confusing. Many people believe they are synonymous, but the two words mean different things. Dementia is a general term for a decline in mental ability severe enough to interfere with daily life. Alzheimer’s is the most common cause of dementia. Alzheimer’s is a specific disease. Dementia is not. Join our team of Neuroscience experts to learn about the two terms and the difference between them is important and can empower individuals with Alzheimer’s or another dementia, their families, and their caregivers with necessary knowledge. Wednesday, August 5 at noon. A Q&A session will follow the presentation.
