Publication Dementia, Caregiving and Transportation

Dementia describes a set of symptoms associated with the progressive decline of an individual’s cognitive function, often becoming severe enough to interfere with everyday activities. The most common form of dementia is Alzheimer’s disease, although dementia can be caused by a number of conditions, such as a stroke or traumatic brain injury (Alzheimer’s Association, 2015). While symptoms of dementia can vary greatly, individuals with dementia may experience challenges with one or more of the following:

• Memory

• Communication and language

• Ability to focus and pay attention

• Reasoning and judgment

• Perception and processing of visual information

• Physical mobility
