Alzheimer's disease overview

Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia affecting around half a million people in the UK.. Symptoms of Alzheimer's, including early-onset Alzheimer's, include problems with memory, judgement, and thinking, which makes it hard to work or take part in day-to-day life. As the stages of Alzheimer's progress, memory loss and other signs of Alzheimer's become more apparent. Many people find help with Alzheimer's medications, but there is no cure for this form of dementia.
