The Alzheimer’s Association website, www.alz.org, also provides a comparison chart of Alzheimer’s symptoms and typical age-related behaviors. There is also a “Brain Tour” link available on the site to see precisely how Alzheimer’s disease affects the brain.The Alzheimer’s Association encourages early detection of the disease so that people can get the best help possible.
