Dementia describes a collection of symptoms that are caused by disorders affecting the brain. Dementia affects thinking, behaviour and the ability to perform everyday tasks. Brain function is affected enough to interfere with the person's normal social or working life. It is not a normal part of ageing.

Dementia can happen to anyone, but it is more common after the age of 65 years. People in their 40s and 50s can also have dementia. The early signs of dementia are very subtle, and may not be immediately obvious. Some common symptoms may include progressive and frequent memory loss, confusion, personality change, apathy, withdrawal and reduced ability to perform everyday tasks. 

We offer assessment and functional management strategies to deal with communication and swallowing difficulties, and work closely with families and carers.
