Comparison between Alzheimer’s and Dementia
Alzheimer's disease is the most common form of dementia, accounting for 60 to 80% of all cases. Dementia is a broad term for neurological conditions that involve some form of serious mental impairment, such as memory loss, confusion, and/or personality changes. Around 20% of dementias can be cured or at least treated, but many dementias that become progressively worse over time are incurable, as is currently the case with Alzheimer's. As such, the outcome for Alzheimer's disease and many forms of dementia is ultimately death.
