Dementia is an overall term for diseases and conditions characterized by a decline in memory, language, problem-solving, and other thinking skills that affect a person's ability to perform everyday activities. Memory loss is an example but Dementia is more than just loss of memory. It is brain failure.
Parkinson's disease (PD) is a form of Dementia. PD occurs when brain cells that make dopamine, a chemical that coordinates movement, stop working or die. Because PD can cause tremor, slowness, stiffness and walking and blance problems, it is called a "movement disorder." But constipation, depression, memory problems and other non-movement symptoms also can be part of Parkinson's disease.
