Alzheimer’s disease and dementia are major neurocognitive disorders that are marked by memory impairment and a decline in executive functioning. Symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease include: memory loss, bad decision making, loss of spontaneity, repetitive questioning, losing things or getting lost, mood and personality changes, increased anxiety or aggression, confusion, inability to learn new things, aphasia (reading, speaking, or writing disorder), apraxia (motor disorder), shortened attention span, agnosia (problems recognizing family and friends, objects, sounds, or smells), impulsivity, hallucinations, delusions, and paranoia.
Alzheimer’s disease and dementia can be severely disabling and are chronic diseases in which one’s health gradually deteriorates over time.
