What is the difference between alzheimer's and dementia?

Dementia is a series of symptoms such as memory loss, problems with processing information, and an impaired ability to perform daily functions. Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia and is a degenerative brain disease. While patients may experience dementia, it does not mean they have Alzheimer's. However, if someone has Alzheimer's, they will experience most of the symptoms under the category of dementia.
