Dementia Care Stockport: FAQs

What are The 7 Stages Of Dementia?

It can be helpful to think of dementia in three stages: early, middle and late stages. Within these, there are 7 stages that are related to Alzheimer’s and dementia:

Early Stage:

  • Stage 1: No Cognitive Decline (Normal) – No impact to the quality of life.
  • Stage 2: Very Mild Cognitive Decline (Forgetfulness) – Little to no impact, however this stage may include slight memory lapses, such as forgetting where they placed items or names of acquaintances. These are often attributed to normal aging.
  • Stage 3: Mild Cognitive Decline (Early Confusion) – Very little impact to quality of life, however symptoms become more noticeable and include difficulty concentrating, increased forgetfulness, and challenges with finding the right words in conversation.

Middle Stage:

  • Stage 4: Moderate Cognitive Decline (Mild Dementia) – Very little impact to quality of life, however this stage marks a clear decline in cognitive function, with significant memory loss, difficulty managing finances or traveling alone, and decreased ability to perform complex tasks.
  • Stage 5: Moderately Severe Cognitive Decline (Moderate Dementia) – Individuals in this stage require assistance with daily activities. They may experience significant confusion, have difficulty recalling personal details like address or phone number, and need help with dressing and personal hygiene.

Late Stage:

  • Stage 6: Severe Cognitive Decline (Moderately Severe Dementia) – At this stage, memory continues to decline severely. Individuals may require constant supervision and assistance with activities of daily living. Behavioural changes such as wandering, delusions, or agitation may occur.
  • Stage 7: Very Severe Cognitive Decline (Severe Dementia) – This final stage is characterised by a near-complete loss of cognitive function and communication abilities. Individuals may lose the ability to speak, recognise family members, or control movement. They typically require round-the-clock care for basic needs.
