  2. 2. WHAT IS ALZHEIMER'S? • Alzheimer's disease is a progressive form of prensenile dementia that is similar to senile dementia but starts in the 40s or 50s. • This form of dementia causes problems with memory, thinking and behavior.
  3. 3. HOW ALZHEIMER'S DEVELOPS The exact cause for Alzheimer’s is not yet known, however, there are several known risk factors. These include: • Age • Family History • Genes
  4. 4. SYMPTOMS OF ALZHEIMER'S • Symptoms usually develop slowly and progressively worst over time, becoming severe in enough to interrupt daily routines and tasks. • The most common symptom of dementia is difficulty remembering newly learned information. • As Alzheimer's advances more severe symptoms develop such as disorientation, behavior and mood changes, deepening confusion about events, time and place, etc….
  5. 5. TREATMENTS FOR ALZHEIMER'S • Alzheimer's has no current cure but there are treatments for symptoms are available and research continues. • Treatments they can temporarily slow the worsening of dementia symptoms and improve the quality of life for those with Alzheimer's and their caregivers. • Doctors will determine what treatments you need based on your age, overall health, medical history, and extent of the disease.
  6. 6. HOW TO PREVENT ALZHEIMER'S • You can reduce your chances of developing Alzheimer's by eating right, exercising, staying socially and mentally active, and keeping stress in check. • All these can help prevent the development of Alzheimer's but aren't 100% completely keeping you from getting it.
