Alzheimer's Disease

 

Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer's disease is a progressive disease that damages memory and other important mental functions. The first symptoms of Alzheimer's disease are mild confusion and remembering problems. Later,  people with this disease may forget people who are important for them and may undergo personality changes.

Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of dementia that cause loss of mental and social skills. In Alzheimer's disease, brain cells are damaged or die, causing a steady fall in memory and mental functions.

Alzheimer's disease has no cure, but medications and management strategies are known to temporarily improve symptoms. These medicions may help people with Alzheimer's disease to elevate function and protect their independence for longer.

People with Alzheimer's disease may:

·         Repeat statements and questions over and over, not realizing that they've asked the question before

·         Forget conversations, appointments or events, and not remember them later

·         Get lost in familiar places

·         Forget the names of family members and everyday objects

·         Have trouble finding the right words to identify objects, express thoughts or take part in conversations

Studies show that there is no proven way to prevent Alzheimer's disease, but a reducing in the risk of heart disease can reduce the risk of Alzheimer's disease. Alzheimer's disease can be slowed down with early diagnosis.
