Dementia: let's talk about it!

Dementia is a general term that brings together a whole group of symptoms and diseases that are associated with brain disorders. It describes a wide range of symptoms associated with a decline in memory or other cognitive skills severe enough to reduce a person's ability to perform daily activities.
There are more than 50 forms of dementia. Among the most frequent forms are: Alzheimer's disease, vascular dementia, dementia with Lewy bodies and frontotemporal dementia.

 

Dementia is not just about the person affected, but everyone around them.

Living with a partner or family member with dementia is particularly trying, and dealing with it on a daily basis is very difficult. In addition, seeing a close person regress and forgetting you can only be overwhelming. Dementia is demanding and has repercussions for the person concerned and those around him, hence the importance of providing them with support.

To improve access to information on dementia diseases, their diagnosis and help for those concerned and their entourage, the Info-Zenter Demenz, a neutral national center, is available from Monday to Saturday at 14a, rue des baths at L-1212 Luxembourg. Its mission is to inform and educate the Luxembourg population free of charge on this subject.
