What Is Alzheimer's Disease?

Last updated 6 years ago

Senior care often entails looking after those with Alzheimer’s disease. As this video explains, Alzheimer’s disease is a chronic degenerative condition that destroys brain function.

Approximately 10% of all Americans over the age of 65 will develop Alzheimer’s disease. The condition begins in the hypothalamus, where protein fragments devastate brain cells that aid memory formation. It then travels to other areas of the brain, eventually destroying the control centers for language, logic, emotion, long-term memory, and physiological processes. By bringing more attention to this unyielding disease, individuals can encourage further research and better medical care.
