What is Alzheimer's disease
Alzheimer's is a chronic neurodegenerative disease that usually has a slow start and gets worse with time. It causes a slow decline in memory and the development of dementia. The latter is a brain disease that causes the loss of ability to think and remember. It can also affect the emotional state, ability to speak, and creates problems with motivation.
