Alzheimer’s disease is a brain disorder that starts slowly, and progressively destroys a person’s ability to think, remember, and carry out simple tasks. It affects millions of people, and is the most common cause of dementia. Symptoms most commonly appear in a person’s mid-60s, but a rare early-onset type can begin as early as a person’s 30s.
Symptoms of Alzheimer’s include:
- Gradual loss of memory
- Difficulties solving simple problems
- Confusion completing familiar tasks
- Inability to keep track of time or location
- Problems speaking or writing
- Changes in mood and personality
Studies of Alzheimer’s disease first began in the early 1900s. Today we understand far more about the changes happening in the brain, but a cure remains elusive. At Complete Brain Center, we work with world renowned researchers to provide advanced options that treat the symptoms of Alzheimer’s. For every patient, a custom tailored approach is developed that covers a prescription regimen plus healthy lifestyle changes with both the patient and their family in mind.
