Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of dementia, a decline in mental ability, memory and reasoning.
Alzheimer's disease is not a typical part of aging; it involves cognitive changes in the brain. Caregivers — both healthcare providers and family members — benefit greatly from learning about the disease, how it progresses, and particularly how to communicate with someone with Alzheimer's.
