Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type of dementia. It is a degenerative brain disease, meaning that the symptoms continue to worsen over time. Initial symptoms include short-term memory loss and difficulties with expressing oneself verbally. Often, individuals in the early stages will avoid family members and conversations with neighbors due to fears of looking foolish. This disease greatly affects a person’s everyday life, and is challenging for family members. Early intervention is important, and may potentially slow down the disease process.
