Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive, degenerative disorder that destroys nerve cells (neurons) in the brain. As these neurons are destroyed, it results in memory loss and other problems with thinking and behavior. The disease gets worse over time, and is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States.
Alzheimer’s waits for no one. Neither should you. Watch the video “Inside the Brain: Unraveling the Mystery of Alzheimer’s Disease” provided by the National Institute on Aging and contact our Memory Health Specialists if you have questions or concerns about memory loss.
