Understanding Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer’s disorder is a brain disorder that was identified, and defined in 1906. This condition is progressive and it will continually get worse as the person continues to live with it. During the progression of this condition the individual’s brain cells are damaged. This causes complications with memory, thinking and even behavior. Oftentimes the progression becomes so bad that the individual is not able to function the way that, he or she, once did. It becomes very difficult to work or to carry out everyday tasks that they once completed. This person may even begin to have a difficult time remembering those individuals that they are the closest to. The frightening thing about this condition is that at this time there is no cure for this condition.

Common Signs:

    1.) The individual will begin to suffer from memory loss that effects his, or her, daily life and the activities that they once carried out.
    2.) The person will suffer from a great deal of challenges as they attempt to solve problems.
    3.) They will have a difficult time completing tasks that they once did very easily.
    4.) They will become confused related to time and place.
    5.) They will have trouble with images and spaces.
    6.) Trouble will develop with speaking and writing words.
    7.) Will often lose things and they will not be able to retrace their steps.
    8.) Very poor judgment.
    9.) They will become very withdrawn from their work and the social activities that they once enjoyed.
    10.) Others will begin to notice a change in their mood and personality.
