Learning about Alzheimer’s disease will help you care for your loved one, today and tomorrow
Many older people forget someone’s name or misplace things from time to time. This kind of forgetfulness is normal. But, forgetting how to get home, getting confused in places a person knows well, or asking questions over and over can be signs of a more serious problem. The person may have Alzheimer’s disease (pronounced Allz-high-merz duh-zeez). It is a disease of the brain that begins slowly and gets worse over time.
