Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a progressive form and the most common form of dementia. Dementia is a general term that is used to describe a wide range of symptoms such as memory loss, difficulty thinking, and other brain-based skills that may affect an individual’s ability to perform daily activities. AD accounts for up to 80% of cases relating to dementia. Individuals with AD may experience symptoms such as difficulties with problem solving, memory loss, decreased judgment, mood swings, personality changes, disorientation, and other symptoms. These symptoms tend to worsen over time.
