please define the difference between  dementia and alzheimer

Answer
Hi Carolyn and thanks for writing,

I apologise for my very tardy response but my laptop was acting up and I have had a heck of a time getting online for the past 2-3 weeks.  

Dementia comes in many forms with Alzheimer's being the most common form.

I hope this answers your question,
Margot
