Dementia vs. Delirium
DEMENTIA is a gradual neurodegenerative process, and is generally not reversible.
It mainly affects memory.
DELIRIUM comes on swiftly, possibly over one to two days, and symptoms can also vary considerably throughout the day. It mainly affects attention.
Can be caused by acute illness, and is reversible.
