Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a progressive disease that affects over 5 million individuals in the United States. It is the most common form of dementia, which is a general term used to describe a group of chronic brain disorders that cause memory and behavioral problems. AD tends to develop slowly - an individual with AD may begin to experience mild confusion and have difficulty remembering certain things. Eventually, symptoms of AD will become more severe and some individuals with the disease may be unable to recognize friends and family members. Others may even undergo drastic personality changes.
