Dementia is when people lose mental skills that affect their life. This means people have problems with thinking, reasoning, or remembering.
Dementia often gets worse over time, but it’s different for every person. Some people stay the same for many years, while others lose mental skills quickly.
The chance of having dementia increases as people age, but not everyone gets it. It isn’t a normal part of aging. Watch the video to learn more.
