Aging Education

Alzheimer's disease is a progressive and irreversible neurological disorder that affects brain function, particularly memory, thinking, and behavior. It is the most common cause of dementia, accounting for around 60-80% of cases.
The number one thing that families need to understand about Alzheimer's disease is that it is a complex and multifaceted condition that affects not only the person diagnosed but also their loved ones. Alzheimer's disease can have a significant impact on the emotional, financial, and physical wellbeing of everyone involved.

It is essential for families to educate themselves about the disease, its progression, and how it can affect their loved one's life. They need to learn how to communicate effectively with their loved one, manage challenging behaviors, and provide appropriate care and support. It is also crucial for families to seek help and support from healthcare professionals, community resources, and support groups to help them navigate the challenges of Alzheimer's disease.
