Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is one common form of dementia. According to researchers, it is a progressive and degenerative brain disorder amongst the geriatric population, and it can be fatal. The etiology and the progression of AD are not well-defined up to this date. Many scientists believe that most Alzheimer’s c ases are caused by the over-production and accumulation of a specific protein in the brain leading to nerve cell death.Our brain, just like our other body parts, undergoes wear and tear as our age advances. It is common for old people to have a slowing down of mental abilities such as remembering and memorizing as compared to the younger group. However, disorientation, memory loss, and other serious and major changes in thinking are not part of the normal aging process.

The Alzheimer’s Association invokes people to be aware of these 10 warning signs of AD:

  1. Memory Loss that disrupts daily life
  2. Challenges in planning or problem solving
  3. Difficulty completing familiar tasks at home, at work or at leisure
  4. Confusion with time or place
  5. Trouble understanding visual images and spatial relationships
  6. New problems with words in speaking or writing
  7. Misplacing things and losing the ability to retrace steps
  8. Decreased or poor judgment
  9. Withdrawal from work or social activities
  10. Changes in moods or personality
