Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia. It is a progressive disease, where dementia symptoms gradually worsen over a number of years. It involves parts of the brain that control thought, memory and language.

In 2013, as many as 5 million Americans were living with Alzheimer’s disease. It is not a normal part of aging. The greatest known risk factor is increasing age. Changes in the brain can begin years before the first symptoms appear.

According to the National Institute on Aging, in addition to memory problems, someone with Alzheimer’s disease may experience one or more of the following signs:

  • Gets lost.
  • Has trouble handling money and paying bills.
  • Repeats questions.
  • Takes longer to complete normal daily tasks.
  • Displays poor judgment.
  • Loses things or misplacing them in odd places.
  • Displays mood and personality changes.
