Dementia & Alzheimer's

The Most Common Cause of Dementia
Alzheimer's disease is a progressive disorder which causes brain cells to waste away and die off. It is the most common cause of dementia, which is defined as a decline in thinking, behavioral, and social skills that disrupt an individual's ability to function independently.

Early signs of dementia can include forgetting conversations or recent events. This may progress into severe memory impairment and the loss of the ability to carry out everyday tasks. There is no cure, sadly, for Alzheimer's, but a number of treatments can help slow the process and temporarily improve symptoms.

Notable Symptoms of Alzheimer's Disease
  • Changes in behavior and personality
  • Difficulty in thinking and reasoning
  • Memory loss
  • Poor judgment and decision making
  • Trouble planning and performing familiar tasks

Individuals may preserve a number of skills for longer periods, such as reading, singing, telling stories, or drawing. This may be because they are controlled by the parts of the brain that are affected later in the course of the disease.
