E-Course: Dementia Types


This course will discuss normal age-related memory changes, how dementia is commonly diagnosed, and what issues can cause dementia-like symptoms.  However, all dementia-causing diseases are not alike.

Many think dementia is all about memory loss, and memory is often affected…

But in some common dementia types, memory is not affected as an early presenting symptom.

Also, over half of all those with dementia have more than one type of dementia.  This can make a person’s presentation seem different and unique.  Therefore, it is important to develop an understanding of the different dementia types, the typical disease progression for each, and how to be proactive in care approach and environmental modifications to be most successful.

The following dementia types will be discussed in detail:

  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Lewy Body Disease
  • Vascular dementia
  • Frontotemporal dementia
