Alzheimer’s Disease

Alzheimer's is a degenerative brain disease in which brain cell connectivity and the cells themselves degenerate and die. This eventually leads to the degradation of memory and other critical mental functions. Alzheimer's is a form of dementia and accounts for almost 80% of dementia diseases. There is currently no cure for Alzheimer's but there are treatments available to lessen the severity of the disease.

Dementia

Dementia refers to a group of mental conditions primarily affecting people of older age. These mental conditions involve the impairment of two critical brain functions, primarily memory and judgment.
