About Dementia
Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer's disease is a problem that primarily affects memory and thinking. It used to be called "senility" before it was understood to be a disease. Even today, there are many misconceptions about it, such as the idea that it only affects the memory. In fact, Alzheimer's disease affects all aspects of thinking, including person's ability to function and behave as they usually would have. Although Alzheimer's disease often follows a fairly clear pattern, it is still not known why it starts, or even what does the damage. Because Alzheimer's disease has so many effects, it causes a lot of symptoms. The presence of so many things wrong can overwhelm families as they try and cope.
