As you may already know, quite a few members of our family have been afflicted with Alzheimer’s disease. We have posted many articles about Alzheimer’s research and related news, and wanted to provide some more information about efforts within the family to help in the fight.
(AD), also referred to simply as Alzheimer’s, is a neurodegenerative disease that usually starts slowly and progressively worsens. It is the cause of 60–70% of cases of dementia.
The most common early symptom is difficulty in remembering recent events. As the disease advances, symptoms can include problems with language, disorientation (including easily getting lost), mood swings, loss of motivation, self-neglect, and behavioral issues.
As a person’s condition declines, they often withdraw from family and society. Gradually, bodily functions are lost, ultimately leading to death. Although the speed of progression can vary, the typical life expectancy following diagnosis is three to nine years.
