Alzheimer's and other dementias

Dementia and Alzheimer’s are two terms that are often confused, although they are closely related, they are not exactly the same. Dementia refers to the progressive and irreversible loss of cognitive, motor and social skills. This loss can be caused by a variety of reasons, as many as there are types of dementia. The most common type of dementia is Alzheimer’s, which leads to confusion between the two terms, but there are also other types such as Lewy Body, Frontotemporal or Vascular dementia, which, although they are dementias, are not related to Alzheimer’s.

It is important to note that you can have dementia without having Alzheimer’s, but you cannot have Alzheimer’s without having dementia. Alzheimer’s is a specific form of dementia, characterised by the accumulation of protein plaques in the brain and neurofibrillary tangles that cause a progressive deterioration of cognitive functions.
