Dementia

A loss of brain function that occurs with certain diseases. It affects memory, thinking, language, judgment and behavior. A leading cause of dementia in elderly adults is abnormal protein structures in certain areas of the brain. Dementia also occurs as the result of multiple small (mini) strokes known as vascular dementia. Most types of dementia are nonreversible. Alzheimer's disease is the most common form of dementia.

Derby Handle

A derby handle is the handle part of a cane that is shaped with a slight angle and curvature designed to fit the palm comfortably for the user.  The curve of the derby handle flattens slightly just directly over the shaft of the cane, where the hand will rest, and provides the greatest support.
