Alzheimers Disease is the most common form of dementia. This incurable, degenerative disease attacks the brain. Most often, it is diagnosed in people over 65 years of age although the less-prevalent early-onset Alzheimer's can occur much earlier.
Although the course of Alzheimer's disease is unique for every individual, there are many common symptoms. The earliest observable symptoms are often mistakenly thought to be 'age-related' concerns, or manifestations of stress. In the early stages, the most commonly recognised symptom is inability to acquire new memories, such as difficulty in recalling recently observed facts.
