Memory loss commonly occurs as a result of the loss of nerve cells in the brain. When memory loss is so severe that it interferes with normal daily functioning, it is called dementia. People with dementia may have difficulty learning new things or remembering names of people they just met. They may get lost in places that were previously very familiar or have trouble finding words. Link!
What happens to the soul of a person suffering from dementia? Is their soul still intact or is it also affected?

If a soul actually existed it would seem to not preclude the physical state of being.

The argument is that a mind that has gone wrong means a consciousness that has gone wrong. The 'Soul' does not continue to operate correctly in despite of a malfunctioning brain. Therefore anything we might calla 'soul' appears to be part an parcel of the grey matter just as ife seems to be part and parcel of the corporeal bod and, when they malfunction or cease to function, that's your lot, notwithstanding all manner of anecdotal dreams visions and hallucinations presented as evidence of something existing apart from the meat.

The soul is other than the body.

The soul is the spirit: the aethereal spirit which is identical with the material body like a true copy or mirror image with the same size and shape and organs: only the body is material, while the soul is spiritual or aethereal.

The body is a cover of the soul.

Example: if you wear a semi-transparent glasses: you cannot see all the surroundings: only you can see some of the surroundings which is lighted or illuminated, while the dim objects you cannot see.
But when man removes his semi-transparent glasses: he will be able to see all the material objects around him.

The disease affects the body, not the soul. The soul will be intact from every effect following its completed formation.

The soul is very tricky.

It behaves in ways that are identical to it not existing at all.

See there is a dark spirit , Jesus spirit call cognitive disruptor demons who will go in a people who is weakened by a stroke , and familiar spirit can be very deceptive to these people , were these demons can challenge these people were friends and relatives will not even know the character of these people because demons are talking through them sometimes ...... But if these people knew Lord Jesus and were Christians , then prayer and authority in the spirit with Jesus blood will make life for these people manageable were they can receive all their days in the earth ...... So keeping these people in church will be helpfully , as people will pray for them .... No matter how hard it gets for these people if they knew Jesus then Jesus will have their soul and their is No reason for alarm, as deformities in the mind will all get a pass in Jesus Judgment for their eternal life ...

The soul ( or your life force) is not the same as your brain or mind. The brain dies, after all.

And with it dies the consciousness of that individual, what many mistakenly call a soul.

A person, and even our dogs and cats, exist only in the memories of those that knew and loved them. When they die, then even that is gone.

Sorry, no soul, no afterlife, and if you believe in that you are chasing an absurd fairy tale. But you will never be disappointed for you won't be aware there is nothing after we all die, for there is nothing beyond.

That's why I believe that exorcisms should be required under Obamacare, and that Social Security should require every retirement community and nursing home to have a Shaman or a Houngan on staff 24/7.
