Physiotherapy Rehabilitation for Dementia in Elderly Population

Abin Abraham Mammen, Sharath Hullumani V, Jakka Rahul


Abstract: Dementia can be broadly defined as depletion in cognitive performance which makes a person unable to meet multiple intellectual demands of daily life. Dementia is acquired, persistent impairment not by delirium in multiple areas of intellectual function. Some dementia types are progressive but others may be persistent or plateau. Sometimes in cases, the onset can be insidious, as is generally the case in AD, but in many cases, whether something develops after head trauma or stroke, the onset of dementia may be acute, particular. While most dementias are the result of changes in the brain structure, infections and metabolic causes can be treated with success. We are confronted with a diagnostic criterion as we delve into the area of dementia and the increasingly expanding area of dementia research.
