What are the different kinds of dementia? Why might a person develop the condition? Here we take a look at some of the most common forms of dementia.
Some forms of dementia can be reversed such as head injuries that either recover naturally or are treated with medication.
Other types of dementia cannot be treated and are classed as progressive dementias (where there is no cure and the person worsens with time). These conditions are caused by having a disease that affects how the brain functions.
