Alzheimer’s is a fatal brain disease that causes a slow decline in memory, thinking and reasoning skills. While some memory loss is a normal part of aging, it could be a sign of Alzheimer’s disease if it disrupts daily life.The Alzheimer’s Association has put together a list of the 10 signs of Alzheimer’s for individuals and their loved ones to determine if they need to see a medical professional for a diagnosis and seek out help for dementia home care.
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.
