Understanding Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer’s Disease is an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills, and eventually the ability to carry out the simplest tasks. Alzheimer’s Disease is the most common cause of dementia among older adults. Dementia is the loss of cognitive functioning - thinking, remembering, and reasoning - and behavioral abilities to such an extent that it interferes with a person’s daily life and activities. Dementia ranges in severity from the mildest stage, when it is just beginning to affect a person’s functioning, to the most severe stage, when the person must depend completely on others for basic activities of daily living.
