What is Alzheimer's Disease?
Alzheimer's Disease, a prominent type of senile dementia, is a neurodegenerative disorder that progressively destroys memory, thinking skills, and other mental functions. It targets the brain regions that are associated with thought, memory, and language. At its severe stage, the cognitive difficulties will interfere with carrying out everyday tasks. Today, more than 6.5 Americans, typically over the age of 60, are affected by this illness. This number is expected to rise to 13.8 million by 2060.
