A Closer Look at Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer’s disease is a terminal, progressive illness that involves the formation of neurofibrillary tangles and beta-amyloid plaques in the brain. Since the disease first affects the hippocampus, individuals are likely to first notice short-term memory loss. As the disease progresses, individuals require more intensive Alzheimer’s care at an assisted living location.
