So if you are aged 60 years and above or you are quite young, this article will be important whether you are old or young because you could learn and also give valuable health tips to your loved ones.

As I said earlier, at old age, the cells in the human body deteriorate which is why senile people have very weak immune system but dementia is a medical condition that manifests when there is defective behavioural and cognitive abilities. Dementia has been seen to affect a lot of people during their old age.
