(Video coming soon)

Definition:

Alzheimer’s disease is a type of dementia that interferes with behavior, memory, and thinking. Dementia is a broader term for memory loss and cognitive deficits that interfere with daily activities of living. Most individuals with the condition are diagnosed after the age of 65.

Symptoms may include :

  • Memory impairment or memory loss affecting daily life activities, such as keeping appointments or remembering directions,
  • Difficulties with language, motor activity, recognizing objects or people,
  • Disturbance of executive function – the ability to plan, organize, and abstract.,
  • Difficulties with problem solving,
  • Disorientation to time or place,
  • Trouble with familiar tasks, such as using a microwave,
  • Poor or decreased judgment,
  • Decreased grooming or personal hygiene,
  • Isolation, withdrawal from friends, family, and community,
  • Mood and personality changes.

Treatment:

Medications have been used with modest – and generally short-term -- success in forestalling the usual progression of these disorders.
