(EMAILWIRE.COM, October 06, 2015 ) October 1, 2015 - Houston, TX -- A new article at Stoppingdementia.com reports that the number of dementia, Alzheimer's and memory loss cases are doubling around the world. The article reports that until recently dementia in its different forms has thought to only affect seniors over the age of 65. New studies are showing it appearing in those as young as 30 years of age.
Dementia is the term used for a category of diseases that interfere with living daily life. It starts with
Alzheimer's disease is the most Common form of dementia and others are Lewy bodies disease, Huntington's disease, Parkinson's disease, mixed dementia disease and traumatic brain injury can also cause dementia. The comedian/actor Robin Williams was diagnosed with Lewy bodies dementia.
According to the article at StoppingDementia.com, "When you mention dementia or Alzheimer's most people think of someone over 65, frail, poor health and unable to take care of themselves. Well not anymore. Dementia, it's not just for seniors anymore according to new studies. One study from the UK has found the numbers of dementia cases almost doubling when you look at the numbers."
The article goes on to point out, "Many people will be coming to terms with the symptoms while still in work, perhaps looking after children and paying a mortgage. Too often we hear of people reporting memory loss to their doctor in mid-life, but being misdiagnosed because they are considered too young to have dementia."
The challenge that this new information presents us with according to one healthcare consultant is now we have to address helping people with dementia who are taking care of families and daily living and more than likely also taking care of senior family members who are also suffering from dementia.
Currently, according to surveys, Dementia is the number one fear of those 55 and older. Now we have a whole new segment of the population having to deal with the number one fear of seniors.
