The younger an individual is, the more likely genetics (familial history) are the explanation for early-onset dementia. Alzheimer's disease , vascular disease, FTD, and Dementia with Lewy bodies are more common causes of dementia in younger people.

Dementia may be a common term for a deterioration in capability severe enough to interfere with lifestyle . Alzheimer's is that the commonest explanation for dementia. Alzheimer's may be a specific disease.
