Stages of dementia

Dementia is a progressive condition that gets gradually worse over time, and as yet, there is no cure or treatment that slows this progression down. This may happen quickly or slowly, depending on factors including the type of dementia, the person’s age, their general health, and their lifestyle. It can be helpful to think of dementia progressing in three stages – earlymiddle and late stages.
