Alzheimer's Disease: The Basics

Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive, irreversible brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and cognitive abilities, leading to difficulties in thinking and reasoning, and eventually to independent functioning. It's the most common form of dementia among older adults, with symptoms typically starting to appear in individuals in their mid-sixties. Although there is currently no cure, certain treatments and medications can help manage symptoms and improve quality of life.
