Alzheimer's Disease - What Is It?

If your senior parent was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or if you think they may have the beginning symptoms of the disease, you most likely feel confused and discouraged. What is Alzheimer’s? How will it affect my parent’s health, lifestyle, and independence? A diagnosis of Alzheimer’s doesn’t just affect those with the disease, it affects everyone who loves and cares about them. Alzheimer’s forces family care providers to take on new and unfamiliar roles when caring for senior parents. This can challenge even the strongest of family bonds.

Alzheimer's is a type of dementia that causes problems with memory, thinking and behavior, according to the Symptoms usually develop slowly and get worse over time and may ultimately cause key body functions to cease. Doctors and researchers do not fully understand what causes Alzheimer’s disease. However, we do know that there are several factors that are linked to :

  • Family history – researchers believe that genetics may play a role in contracting Alzheimer’s.
  • Age is the clearest risk factor for Alzheimer’s.
  • Changes in the brain can start years before the initial symptoms appear.
  • Researchers are studying whether education, diet, and environment play a role in developing Alzheimer’s--with no conclusions at this time.
  • Scientists are finding some evidence that the key risk factors for heart disease and stroke, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and low levels of the vitamin folate may heighten the risk of Alzheimer’s.
  •  In 2013, as many as 5 million Americans were living with Alzheimer’s disease, according to the . By 2050, this number is projected to rise to 14 million Americans.
