Every 65 seconds, someone develops Alzheimer’s disease in the United States.
Alzheimer's is a type of dementia that causes problems with memory, thinking and behavior. Symptoms usually develop slowly
and get worse over time, becoming severe enough to interfere with daily tasks. Alzheimer's is a progressive disease, where
dementia symptoms gradually worsen over a number of years. In its early stages, memory loss is mild, but with late-stage
Alzheimer's, individuals lose the ability to carry on a conversation and respond to their environment.
Alzheimer's is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. Those with Alzheimer's live an
average of eight years after their symptoms become noticeable to others, but survival can range from
four to 20 years, depending on age and other health conditions.
Symptons of Alzheimer's
The most common early symptom of Alzheimer's is difficulty remembering newly learned information because Alzheimer's changes typically begin in the part of the brain that affects learning. As Alzheimer's advances through the brain it leads to increasingly severe symptoms, including disorientation, mood and behavior changes; deepening confusion about events, time and place; unfounded suspicions about family, friends and professional caregivers; more serious memory loss and behavior changes; and difficulty speaking, swallowing and walking.
People with memory loss or other possible signs of Alzheimer’s may find it hard to recognize they have a problem. Signs of dementia may be more obvious to family members or friends. Anyone experiencing dementia-like symptoms should see a doctor as soon as possible.
Wear purple to work and encourage your coworkers to have an Alzheimer's awareness day.
