This chapter presents neuropsychological findings for four individuals with significant cognitive impairment. While each of these cases met clinical criteria for dementia, the pattern of impairments varied considerably from person to person. Suspected causes and contributing factors were also quite diverse. In two cases, there was significant depression, and in another, psychotic symptoms had been the first sign of neurological disease. The detracting effects of personal loss, relocation, and poor social supports are apparent in three of the cases but are particularly striking in the second example.
