ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE is the most common cause of dementia in the elderly. Unfortunately, there is no cure for Alzheimer’s Disease; however, medications can slow the process. It usually occurs after age 65 and is not typical for aging. We don’t know how you get Alzheimer’s, but family history can predispose you to the disease. Alzheimer’s statistics show that 1 in 3 seniors over 85 have the disease. The medical community has become better at identifying and diagnosing Alzheimer’s. This disease has three primary stages: early, middle, and late. A person can go back and forth between the stages of the disease; however, the late phase can happen quickly, and the patient can decline rapidly. Alzheimer’s disease damages the part of the brain that controls response to communication. The amount and type of damage may vary from person to person. A Geriatric Neurologist or your Physician will make this diagnosis.

Our experience, ongoing commitment, and heartfelt compassion for Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care are our passions.
