UNDERSTANDING DEMENTIA I M P O R T A N T A N D A C C U R A T E D I A G N O S I S F O R D E M E N T I A However, these symptoms are not always related to dementia. Factors like stress, depression, diabetes or infections can also cause these symptoms. Therefore, it is always important to seek a doctor for an accurate diagnosis. In Alzheimer’s dementia, it typically takes seven to ten years from diagnosis to severe dementia and death. Since the causes of dementia are not fully understood, there is no cure for it. However, drugs can be prescribed for people with mild and moderate dementia that may slow down the rate of decline for a period of time. 7
