Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia. It is a progressive brain disorder that slowly deteriorates one’s memory and cognitive abilities. As the disease takes hold, patients lose the ability to think and reason. During the progression of the disease, individuals living with Alzheimer’s find it difficult and nearly impossible to perform even basic daily tasks, such as bathing, dressing, and taking care of themselves.

Although the exact cause of Alzheimer’s is uncertain, Both environmental and genetic factors contribute to the development of the disease. Co-occurring conditions such as obesity, diabetes, or hypertension may also play a role in the onset of Alzheimer’s.
