Place disorientation occurs when a person loses a sense of where they are. They may have become disorientated in the sense of being lost because of poor navigation or unfamiliarity with the surroundings. While older adults with dementia and other people with brain damage can not recognise even previously well known locations because of the effects of their condition.
