Dementia is the loss of cognitive functioning—thinking, remembering, and reasoning— and behavioural abilities to such an extent that it interferes with a person’s daily life and activities. These functions include memory, language skills, visual perception, problem solving, self-management, and the ability to focus and pay attention. Some people with dementia cannot control their emotions, and their personalities may change.

Medication management is the monitoring of medication that a patient takes to confirm that he or she is complying with a medication regimen, while also ensuring the patient is avoiding potentially dangerous drug interactions and other complications. This is especially important for those taking large numbers of medication to address chronic illnesses and multiple diseases. Taking multiple medication is known as polypharmacy, and it is particularly common among older adults, as they are more likely to need medication to manage an array of chronic conditions.
