Living With Alzheimers

We understand the issues associated with living with memory loss. We hope that each of you will take the time to read about and understand the disease as your loved one and your family journeys along this difficult life path.

Alzheimer's Disease (AD) (as defined by the medical dictionary at freedictionary.com) is the most common form of dementia, a neurologic disease characterized by loss of mental ability severe enough to interfere with normal activities of daily living, lasting at least six months, and not present from birth. AD usually occurs in old age, and is marked by a decline in cognitive functions such as remembering, reasoning, and planning.

More information related to Alzheimer's disease and related dementia, along with the link to your local chapter can be found at the Alzheimer's Association website.
