🧠 Common Types of Dementia 🧠
👉 Dementia is actually an umbrella term and includes many different types. The most common are Alzheimer’s, Vascular Dementia, Dementia with Lewy Bodies, Frontotemporal Dementia & Mixed Dementia.
👉 There are over 200 types of dementia, and that each person's dementia journey will be different, even if they have the same type?
👉 Dementia isn't a disease, but rather a condition affecting the mind, and caused by a range of different diseases that affect the brain. ⠀
👉 Did you also know that dementia doesn't just affect the elderly? Research suggests that it affects the under-65s too.
This article from Dementia TLC hopes to explain the most common types in more detail to provide a better understanding of this condition.
