Normal brain ageing results in some decline in some cognitive functions (for example, speed of thinking and working memory). Dementia and cognitive impairment, however are not a part of normal brain ageing; they are diagnosable conditions.

Dementia is described as a set of symptoms which suggest difficulties with cognitive function. Dementia is diagnosed when the symptoms cause affect to the person who has these symptoms to the extent that they can no longer carry on living independently, without care.

In this module we will provide a list of the most common symptoms and then ask you to carry out some exercises on a worksheet or via an online quiz.
