Abstract

Alzheimer’s is an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that affects every aspect of the effected individual’s life. Alzheimer's acts by choking healthy nerve cells until they begin to die off, leaving the brain with empty pockets. This presentation addresses what Alzheimer’s is, the causes of Alzheimer’s, along with its diagnosis and treatment. It is important to discuss this disease as it not only affects those that have it, but equally affects family and friends of the diagnosed.
