Dent Integrative Center for Memory
Memory disorders result from a wide range of ailments and causes, including injury, stroke, tumors, hypertension, Alzheimer’s, and other diseases commonly associated with, but not limited to, the elderly.
Almost everyone of any age experiences occasional minor, routine memory lapses. People who suffer from memory disorders often experience progressive memory loss and chronic forgetfulness, especially of recent events.
As memory disorders progress, typically people begin to exhibit confusion or dementia. Dementia, a decline in the ability to think, reason, or remember, is accompanied by behavioral changes. Dementia sufferers may forget how to perform routine, everyday tasks, fail to recognize friends and family, and become increasingly alienated socially and emotionally.
There are many causes and types of dementia, including Multi-infarct dementia, Parkinson ’s disease, Lewy Body dementia, and Fronto-temporal dementia.
Other possible causes of dementia include vitamin deficiency, infections, and thyroid abnormalities.
