FAQ About the Difference between Alzheimer's and Dementia

February 16, 2015


Dementia is simply a broad term for the symptoms associated with Alzheimer’s and related diseases. It is NOT a diagnosis, or some less serious/early form of Alzheimer’s. Sometimes it is listed as a diagnosis, as in “Dementia-Unspecified”, in other words the specific disease being unknown. However, there is always some disease/cause underlying this set of symptoms and this broad usage causes many individuals and families (and even healthcare providers) to be confused.
