Alzheimer’s Disease: Introduction (NHS Choices)

Summary

This NHS Choices web page gives an easy to understand overview for the layman which introduces Alzheimer’s Disease, and provides useful links to other sources of recommended patient information leaflets online.

Example quotation:

“Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia, which is a group of symptoms associated with a decline in mental abilities, such as memory and reasoning.

Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive condition, which means that it will continue to get worse as it develops. Early symptoms include:

– Minor memory problems.

– Difficulty saying the right words.

These symptoms change as Alzheimer’s disease develops, and it may lead to:

– Confusion.

– Personality changes.

 – Change in behaviour”.
