In addition to providing basic knowledge about the symptoms, this section also provides an easy-to-understand summary, as a quick reference, for early detection of dementia, things that a person should know before seeing a doctor, the treatment methods available, and who actually to consult when dementia is suspected, etc. Please use this as an introduction to dementia.
