    What Is Alzheimer's Disease?

    Last updated 6 years ago

    Alzheimer’s is a progressive neurological disease of the brain which causes the loss of intellectual abilities, including memory and reasoning. If a patient is suffering from Alzheimer’s, abnormal clumps, called plaques, and bundles of fibers, called tangles, develop within the structure of the brain, killing cells. The disease is incurable and ultimately terminal, though there are ways of slowing down its advancement. This progression is divided into stages:

    • Mild Alzheimer's 
      During the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease, a patient may have difficulty recalling words, finding belongings, retaining information, planning, and learning new things. These difficulties impact some daily functions, specifically sequential tasks including driving, cooking, and shopping. This usually triggers anxiety and depression, causing people to withdraw and become defensive. People are often diagnosed with Alzheimer’s at this early stage.
    • Moderate Alzheimer's 
      If a patient is suffering from moderate Alzheimer’s, symptoms become more severe and more evident than with mild Alzheimer’s. Memory worsens and details about personal history are forgotten, often causing confusion about time and place. At this point, supervision from a home care provider with tasks that involve multiple steps, such as getting dressed, may be required.
    • Severe Alzheimer's 
      At this stage, most patients will require help from home care providers with all daily activities, including bathing. The ability to walk and recognize speech is lost. Health quickly deteriorates, and patients become bedridden. Reflexes become abnormal, and 24-hour home care is necessary.
