What is Alzheimer’s Disease

Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive disease that destroys memory and other important mental functions.

It’s the most common cause of dementia — a group of brain disorders that results in the loss of intellectual and social skills. These changes are severe enough to interfere with day-to-day life.

The quality of life of the family of someone suffering from Alzheimer’s is often challenging as they care for their loved one.

In Alzheimer’s disease, the connections between brain cells and the brain cells themselves degenerate and die, causing a steady decline in memory and mental function.
