Trip To The Beach Sparks Memories In Dementia Patients

Dementia, as defined by the Alzheimer's Association, is a general term for a decline in mental ability that's severe enough to interfere with daily life. While there are many different kinds of dementia, Alzheimer's is the most common. People with dementia struggle with short-term memory, and as the disease progresses, they have trouble with long-term memory and routine chores such as keeping track of belongings, paying bills, preparing meals, remembering appointments -- and over time, even recognizing loved ones.
