Dementia is a serious loss of global cognitive ability in a previously unimpaired person, beyond what might be expected from normal aging. It may be static, the result of a unique global brain injury, or progressive, resulting in long-term decline due to damage or disease in the body. Dementia is not a single disease, but rather a non-specific illness syndrome in which affected areas of cognition may be memory, attention, language, and problem solving.
