Senility is now referred to as Dementia or “Senile Dementia.” It is characterized by decreased cognitive abilities that may include the person’s ability to concentrate, recall information and properly judge situations. Senility involves a deterioration of body and mind associated with advanced aging. Two major types of senile dementia are identified: those due to generalized atrophy (Alzheimers type) and those due to vascular problems (eg: strokes). “Senile Dementia” is often used as a synonym for Alzheimers disease.
Brain disorders may be caused by trauma, illness or infection. Parkinson’s, Pick’s and Huntington’s disease can cause senility. In such cases, senility is generally not reversible. Other conditions that cause senility may be treatable, including hypothyroidism, tumors and vitamin deficiencies.
