More About Alzheimer’s Disease
Alzheimer’s disease is a condition that affects the brain and causes problems with memory, critical thinking and behavior. It usually develops in older people, and in some cases it can be hereditary. Over time, people with Alzheimer’s disease lose skills they need in everyday life. They may struggle to remember simple things like where they live or how to use the phone. The loss of abilities like these can make it difficult to live independently.
