- Dementia is a general term for a decline in mental ability severe enough to interfere with daily life.
- Alzheimer's is the most common form of dementia
- Alzheimer’s causes problems with memory, thinking and behaviour
- The most common early symptom of Alzheimer's is difficulty remembering newly learned information
- Symptoms usually develop slowly and get worse over time, becoming severe enough to interfere with daily tasks.
- Alzheimer’s is not normal part of ageing although the greatest known risk factor is increasing age (majority of people with Alzheimer's are 65 and older)
- Alzheimer's worsens over time and is a progressive disease
- Alzheimer's disease typically progresses slowly in three general stages — mild (early-stage), moderate (middle-stage), and severe (late-stage)
- There is no simple way to detect Alzheimer’s but includes a comprehensive review by specialists
- Alzheimer's has no current cure but has to be managed to delay further deterioration. Treatments for symptoms are available and research continues.
