Dementia Series-Disabled Legend Charles Bronson

Charles Bronson was born Charles Dennis Buchinsky, on 3 November, 1921 and died on 30 August, 2003. Charles was an American actor of “tough guy”, or “macho” roles. In most of his roles, he played a police detective, western gunfighter, vigilante, boxer or Mafia hitman.

Charles’ father died when he was only 10, and he went to work in the coal mines like his older brothers until he was drafted for World War II. Charles’ family was so poor that, at one time, he reportedly had to wear his sister’s dress to school because he had nothing else to wear.

What is Dementia?

Dementia is the progressive decline in cognitive function due to damage or disease in the brain beyond what might be expected from normal aging. Although dementia is far more common in the geriatric population, it may occur in any stage of adulthood.

In dementia, affected areas in cognition may be memory, attention, language, and problem solving.

The prevalence of dementia is rising as the global life expectancy is rising. Particularly in Western countries, there is an increasing concern about the economic impact that dementia will have in future, older populaces.

There is no cure to this illness, although scientists are progressing in making a type of medication that will slow down the process. Cholinesterase inhibitors are often used early in the disease course

Tacrine (Cognex), donepezil (Aricept), galantamine (Reminyl), and rivastigmine (Exelon) are approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treatment of dementia induced by Alzheimer disease. They may be useful for other similar diseases causing dementia such as Parkinsons or vascular dementia.
