What is Alzheimer’s Disease?
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia—a group of disorders characterized mostly by memory loss. More than half of all dementia cases are classified as Alzheimer’s disease. While some memory loss is a normal part of the aging process, Alzheimer’s disease is not normal and gets progressively worse over time. In addition to memory loss, Alzheimer’s causes a number of other cognitive issues. Some other noticeable symptoms may include:
- Short-term memory loss
- Suspicion or paranoia about other people (including family)
- Difficulty with communication or speaking
- Behavioral or mood changes
Because the disease does get worse over time, caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s will get increasingly more difficult. We offer specialized Alzheimer’s care services to help take some of the responsibility and stress off of your shoulders.
