Can we predict how dementia will progress following a diagnosis?

When someone receives a diagnosis of dementia, little is known about how their condition will progress and affect that individual over time. This is because dementia affects every person differently, with a number of factors influencing progression such as having other health conditions, our level of cognitive reserve and whether a person takes medications to treat other conditions.
