Description:
"Alzheimers Disease"? Never heard of it!- may have been your dismissive reaction a few years ago or months ago or even yesterday. But to-day it's different. Someone close to you has been diagnosed as having Alzheimer's Disease and maybe you are at your wit's end. But don't despair - to find out more, please read on. Alzheimer's Disease is a type of dementia or brain failure which used to be thought to affect a small number of people under the age of sixty-five, (presenile dementia), but it is now realised that it is also a very common cause of brain failure in older people. It is due to degeneration of brain cells and its cause is as yet unknown.
Keywords:
