Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia, a general term for memory loss and other intellectual abilities serious enough to interfere with daily life. Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive, degenerative, and ultimately fatal disease that destroys brain cells.

There is no doubt that genetics play a role in the disease, but the most common way to get Alzheimer’s is just by normal aging – up to 10% of people between 65 and 74 years of age have this disease. However, there are medications health care providers may use to help manage problematic symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease. These symptoms may include depression, sleepiness, and…Read More

Age – As you get older,…Read More
