How Do You Know Whether Someone You Love Has Alzheimer’s Disease?
Alzheimer’s Disease afflicts millions of adults. Though there have been no significant breakthroughs to determine its causes, various fields of medicine have made strides in the recognition and treatment of this debilitating illness which affects neurological functioning and leads to severe dementia.
The Alzheimer’s patient undergoes a personality change marked by impairments in speech, memory, learning ability, and physical functioning. The patient is unable to manage tasks that before were routine. Cognitive skills, such as judging and decision making, are no longer possible. Often, the patient is given to aimless wandering and must be constantly monitored.
