Imagine your spouse of 40 years has been missing for hours, when he finally comes home, he has no idea where he was or what he was doing.

And over time, cognitive abilities — like being able to process information, or have abstract reasoning and problem solving skills–significantly decrease, leaving patients unable to perform simple tasks and function on their own.
