About Dementia
Alzheimer's Disease


Moderate Alzheimer's disease occurs when people have impairment in instrumental activities of daily living (IADL ), and require prompting for personal care. Requiring to be prompted to change clothes is a very common sign in moderate Alzheimer's disease. Prompting or assistance with more complex daily functions, such as choosing clothing or planning meals is also common. However, basic functions, such as the mechanics of dressing and toileting are generally still intact. Often there will be difficulties with language expression and word finding. They also have trouble following through on a task of more than one or two steps. Due to their problems and symptoms, there is likely to be a greater withdrawal from social and leisure activities.
