What Is Alzheimer's?

Answer:
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia .

When a person is afflicted with this condition involves the loss of intellectual and social abilities that are severe enough to interfere with daily functioning.

This condition is not a part of normal aging, but the risk of the disease developing increases with age. Roughly five percent of the people between the ages of 65 and 74 have Alzheimer’s disease, but nearly half of the people over age 85 have this disease. There currently is no cure for this disease, but there are treatments which can improve the quality of life for people suffering from this disease.

Alzheimer’s may start with slight memory loss and confusion, but eventually it will lead to irreversible mental impairment that will take away the patient’s ability to remember, reason, learn, and imagine.

People with Alzheimer’s may exhibit the following: repeat things, often forget conversations and appointments, routinely misplace things or put them in odd places, and eventually forget the names of family members and everyday objects. These memory problems will persist and worsen over time.
