Psychological Symptoms of Dementia

Many people think of dementia as a cognitive impairment but it is not just memory loss. The cognitive decline associated with memory loss includes many other associated challenges in everyday life. These difficulties can also affect the way you speak, think, feel and behave.

Psychological symptoms can be very distressing not only for the person with dementia but their family and home caregivers.

Some examples of these symptoms include:
• Mood Disorders (aggression, depression, anxiety and apathy)
• Psychotic Episodes (delusion and hallucinations)
• Abnormal Motor Behaviors(pacing, wandering, repetitive vocalization)
• Inappropriate Behavior(agitation, disinhibition, screaming, and elation)
• Sleep and Appetite Changes
