Age-related changes in thinking and some memory impairment are noted in most elderly people, but senile dementia, like Alzheimer's, develops far in not all cases.

It is believed that the deterioration of memory and functioning of the brain with age can not be avoided, and sooner or later, senile dementia, otherwise called senile dementia, will suffer everyone. But in reality, everything is a bit different.

Inevitable changes

Indeed, until the age of 70-80 years, most people develop atherosclerotic changes in the brain vessels, which leads to a deterioration in the supply of brain cells and their damage.

Such changes lead to a gradual decrease in intelligence and are only an inevitable consequence of aging. However, such changes in intelligence and mental functions are often obscure and develop very slowly, and can be offset by life or professional experience.

Senile dementia

Only in some parts of people really develop senile dementia, and this is due, according to scientists, mainly with genetic predisposition.

Senile dementia develops not earlier than 70 years, and may debut, and much later, at the age of 90-95 years.

Senile dementia is characterized by a marked deterioration of memory, a decline in the pace of thinking, the impoverishment of associations. Patients with senile dementia gradually begin to concentrate their attention only on a small circle of phenomena and objects, excluding others from their horizons.

The deterioration of memory, as a rule, affects the present, and patients are more and more immersed in the past. Gaps in memory they fill with fiction and false memories.

An important feature of genuine senile dementia is the change in personality: people become more selfish, indifferent, even aloof. Developing distrust towards others, incomprehensible stinginess, negligence and indifference to hygienic habits.

Senile psychosis

Moreover, against the background of senile dementia, various types of psychoses may develop, such as the loss of material damage or anxiety-depressive syndrome.

Lively ideas can lead to the fact that patients are afraid of being robbed, fearing for their property, trying to hide and protect it. They may not recognize the surrounding, even close relatives, taking them as strangers.

In some cases, auditory hallucinations are also possible. However, senile psychosis is also rare, and genetic factors play a decisive role in their development.

Dementia -

Not for everyone

Thus, despite the fact that some age changes, including the gradual decrease in the functioning of the brain, are an inevitable stage of aging, dementia is expected not by everyone.

Moreover, some types of exercises, such as training memory and thinking functions, will help to delay the inevitable changes, as well as maintain a clear mind and clear thinking for many years to come.
