Situation of the Scene: Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a slowly progressive brain disease characterized by symptoms such as memory impairment and, finally, disturbances in reasoning, planning, language and perception.
Alzheimer's disease is by far the most common cause of dementia in the United States and most countries in the world.
The probability of having Alzheimer's disease increases substantially after age 70, and can affect about 50% of people over 85 years.
The main risk factor for Alzheimer's disease is increasing age. There are also genetic factors and other risk factors.
The characteristic symptoms and stages of Alzheimer's disease include
~ Problems with performing family tasks,
~ Difficulty writing or speaking,
~ Loss of orientation in time and place,
~ Lose or lose objects,
~ Changes in mood or behavior,
~ Loss of interest in daily activities,
~ Poor judgment.
Symptoms may be present in different degrees of severity.
The cause (s) of Alzheimer's disease are not known. Although, the accumulation of amyloid protein in the brain is suspected to play a role.
The diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease should be based on a comprehensive examination that rule out other causes of dementia.
There are numerous causes of dementia, so having the characteristic symptoms does not necessarily mean that a person has Alzheimer's disease.
Treatment and management of Alzheimer's disease consists of drugs and non-drug-based treatments.
For the purposes of this talk, AD can imitate or mask other mental illnesses and often a highly trained geriatric psychiatrist is needed to solve everything. {Source:
