Clinical Stages in Dementia Progression
The Reisberg scale is used to indicate the disease progression. If the person has no memory loss and if he/she is mentally stable and healthy, i.e, a normal person, is said to be in no cognitive stage of the syndrome. The stage 2 or very mild cognitive decline has no evident symptoms, due to ageing the forgetfulness, which is the common symptom emerges during this stage. During the third stage i.e, mild cognitive decline stage people experience increased forgetfulness, and face difficulty in finding words. Stage 4 or moderate cognitive decline includes severe symptoms like decrease in concentration, and the person faces difficulty such that he /she could not travel alone. In stage 5 or moderately severe cognitive decline occurs such that people have difficulties in completing tasks and people start withdrawing from social activities. Next is the middle dementia where the people tend to forget the recent memory activities. The last stage is that they have no ability to talk or communicate. They completely require human help and care.
