Dementia is becoming an increasingly common condition in our aging population here in Australia. When we think of Dementia we often automatically think of Alzheimer's Disease, however there are many different types of dementia or other conditions that can cause dementia like symptoms. Alzheimer's Disease although is by far the most common type of dementia. However it is not always the case that everyday cognitive problems, such as memory difficulties, are due to neurodegenerative conditions. Neuropsychological assessments can help clarify whether these cognitive concerns are due to Dementia / other potential factors or simply due to natural age related cognitive decline
