Commonly, these four types of dementia have been reported: • Alzheimer’s Disease: The most common type of dementia, Alzheimer’s disease involves a slow receding back into time. Its onset is characterized by a short-term memory loss. But in reality, the patient falls back on earlier days as the present slowly wipes off from his/her memory. • Fronto Temporal Dementia: It arises from depletion of the frontal and temporal lobes in the brain. Personality and behavioral changes and language troubles are faced in this type of dementia. • Vascular Dementia: Commonly referred to as “Post Stroke Dementia,” it occurs due to brain damage triggered by mini strokes or cardiovascular conditions that caused bleeding or other effects in the brain. • Lewy Body Dementia: It is also a common type of dementia and has traits of both Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease.
