Alzheimer's Disease Support Group

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia and characterized by progressive cognitive deterioration with declining activities of daily living and neuropsychiatric symptoms or behavioral changes. An early symptom is memory loss (amnesia), usually manifesting as minor forgetfulness that becomes pronounced with illness progression, with relative preservation of older memories.

Can someone help me to clear my doubts? My mother is in her early 60's. But she started showing signs of memory loss. My wife is of the view that mamma is in her early stages of dementia. Since both I and my wife are working, when...

    early onset

    It is with such a heavy heart that I type this all out, but I feel it needs to be done. I work in Alzheimer's care (and absolutely adore it) but obviously by the time they reach the facility the progress of the disease is relatively well advanced. However, it is not one of my residents I am speaking of. It is a family member. I am curious to everyone else's experiences as to when they started to...

Her husband is a busy business man and so I took the responsibility of looking after her. I really find it pathetic when she behaves abnormal. She was working as a teacher at school and gradually she began suffering memory loss. She was admired by all her students for her passion and...
