Dementia is a scary word. Behind its meaning, there lies a terrible truth: one can begin to lose their short term or long term memories and forget where they are. It’s this tragedy that the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates affects 47 million currently and is projected to target 75 million by the year 2030. The number of people with dementia is said to triple by 2050. These statistics do not paint a pretty view of the future with regard to this disease.
While dementia has become common among many people, the WHO is quick to note that the disease itself is not a normal path along the journey of aging. A variety of brain illnesses that affect one’s behavior, memory, ability, and thinking cause this to occur. Alzheimer’s Disease International says it can begin with a change in personality or simple memory loss. You could begin to find it difficult to go about your familiar tasks each day. This disease can affect everyone and is not limited to any one group out there.
As every three seconds pass by, there is a new case of dementia developing. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form while other causes can include dementia with Lewy bodies, frontotemporal dementia, and vascular disease. The social effects of the disease come because there is a great lack of knowledge out there regarding it. The person struggling with it might undergo dehumanization. It can cause a great strain with one’s friends and family. Currently, there is a lack of necessary care for people struggling with dementia and in many times, a delayed diagnosis. If you can detect it early, you might be able to optimize the health of you or your loved one and detect the symptoms while providing long-term care.
Dementia is not cheap in dollars and cents either. The worldwide costs of the disease are around $818 billion. It is a disease which requires a great deal more research.
