Alzheimer's disease is a common type of dementia that affects the memory, thinking ability and behaviour of individuals. It develops slowly and intensifies over time. The symptoms become so severe that they interfere with regular activities of the patients.
Alzheimer’s develops in older people, usually after the age of 60. The risk for this disease increases as you grow older. Family history is also a high risk factor.
Alzheimer’s causes slow damage of the brain, affecting memory, language and thought of people. Forgetfulness is a very common sign exhibited by the patients. It is a disease that causes permanent brain damage and it cannot be cured.
