Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
Dementia is a medical condition which is characterized mainly by memory loos.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm the time that is needed to pass from mild dementia to moderate dementia.
There are many factors that influence this process such as age and nutritional deficiency, thyroid hormones.
There are many examinations that can be done to give us an idea of the progress of dementia in time.
By evidence-based practice, this period can be from five to ten years.
I would recommend an evaluation by a neurologist.
A good nutrition, vitamin supplements and the support by family members has a very good influence in this process.
Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
