Alzheimer’s Disease & Dementia

Alzheimer’s is one of the most common causes of dementia among older adults. Dementia is the loss of cognitive functioning, thinking, remembering, and reasoning and behavioral abilities to such an extent that it interferes with a person daily life and activities. Alzheimer's disease is currently ranked as the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. The causes of dementia can vary, depending on the types of brain changes that may be taking place. Other dementias include Lewy body dementia, frontotemporal disorders, and vascular dementia. It is common for people to have mixed dementia a combination of two or more disorders, at least one of which is dementia. Alzheimer's disease is a chronic neurodegenerative disease that usually starts slowly and worsens over time which is caused by 60–70% of cases of dementia.
