Alzheimer’s Disease


Living with Alzheimer’s disease can be tough. Up to 70% percent of all cases of dementia (progressive memory loss) are attributed to Alzheimer’s – a condition that targets the brain cells and causes them to stop working. The chemicals that help the brain cells communicate break down and things go haywire. Sufferers experience increasing memory loss, cognitive dysfunction, and changes in behavior. The effects of Alzheimer’s affect the sufferer, their loved ones, and others close to them. While there is currently no cure for the disease, treatments can help slow the progression of memory loss and help patients experience a better quality of life.
