Alzheimer’s, Much more than memory loss

Knowing is better than not knowing.  The purpose of the Alzheimer’s Association is to educate the public.  If you think you know all about this disease, you may be missing critical information which may help someone you love.

We interviewed Jennifer Howard, Executive Director of the Alzheimer’s Association-Great Lakes Chapter.

  • Alzheimer’s is a neurodegenerative disease

  • It is the 6th leading cause of death in the U.S.

  • There are changes to the brain as we age, but nothing like with Alzheimer’s Disease.

  • One of the signs is that people are struggling with day to day activities.  For example, paying bills.

  • No one wants to hear they have Alzheimer’s.  But if diagnosed at an early stage, they can become a part of the planning process and decision making.

  • Dementia is an umbrella term.  Dementia is memory loss.  People with Alzheimer’s will experience Dementia as well as other issues.
