I- What is Alzheimer's disease?

Alzheimer's (AHLZ-high-merz) is a brain disease that affects memory, thinking, and behavior.  Alzheimer's disease is not a common geriatric or neurological disease.

1- The most common form of dementia syndrome

Dementia Syndrome is a general term for memory loss and thinking abilities so severe that it interferes with everyday life.  Alzheimer's disease accounts for about 60% to 80% of the diseases that impair memory.

2- More common than you think

 More than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's disease.  The number of Americans with Alzheimer's and other dementia will increase each year as the proportion of Americans over the age of 65 continues to increase.

 With Alzheimer's disease, not only the sick but also the caregivers of the patient are affected.  Caring for someone with Alzheimer's can often be difficult, and many of the family or friends helping to look after the sick person have experienced extreme emotional stress and depression.

3- Worsening over time

 Alzheimer's disease worsens over time and eventually causes death.  While symptoms can vary widely, the first problem many people notice is that forgetfulness is so severe that it affects the person's ability to function when they are at home, at work or at work.  enjoy your own hobbies.

 Other symptoms include confusion, getting lost in familiar places, leaving things out of place, and having difficulty speaking and writing.

II- 10 warning signs of Alzheimer's disease

Memory impairment that disturbs everyday life is not a typical part of the aging process.  It could be a symptom of Alzheimer's disease, a fatal brain condition that causes a gradual decline in memory, thinking and reasoning skills.  Each person may experience one or more symptoms to varying degrees.  If you notice any of these signs, please see your doctor.  Find out how Alzheimer's affects the brain and conduct a Brain Screening.

1- Memory impairment disturbs everyday life

One of the most common signs of Alzheimer's disease is memory impairment, especially forgetting recently learned information.  Other problems include forgetting important dates or events;  asking over and over for the same information;  depend on memory-aiding tools (like electronic devices or sticky notes) or family members on things they can often do on their own.

Compare with normal age-related change: Sometimes you forget a name or appointment, but remember it after a while.

2- Having trouble planning or solving problems

Some people may exhibit changes in their ability to plan and follow a plan or when working with data.  They may also have trouble cooking familiar dishes or keeping track of monthly orders.  They have difficulty concentrating and spend more time doing the jobs they did before.

 Compare with normal age-related change: Making mistakes when settling checks from time to time.

3- Having trouble completing familiar tasks at home, at work, or while playing

People with Alzheimer's often have difficulty completing routine tasks.  Sometimes they also have trouble driving to a familiar location, managing a budget at the company, or memorizing the rules of their favorite game.

 Compare with normal age-related change: Sometimes help is needed to set the microwave settings or record TV programming.

4- Confusion about time or place

People with Alzheimer's may not be able to remember dates, seasons and times of the year.  They may have difficulty understanding something when it doesn't happen right away.  Sometimes, they forget where they are or how they got there.

 Compare with normal age-related change: Feeling vague about the days of the week but remembering later.

5- Having difficulty understanding visual images and relationships in space

For some people, having problems with vision is a sign of Alzheimer's disease.  They have difficulty reading, judging distances, determining color or contrast, which can cause driving problems.

 Comparison with normal age-related change: Vision change related to cataract (cataract).

6- New language difficulties arise when speaking or writing

People with Alzheimer's may have problems following or participating in conversations.  They may stop in the middle of the conversation and don't know how to continue or keep repeating.  They struggled with vocabulary, had difficulty finding the right words or calling the wrong item names (like calling "wall clock" a "watch").

 Compare with normal age-related change: Sometimes it is difficult to find the right word.

7- Place objects in the wrong place and lose the ability to relive steps

 People with Alzheimer's can put things in unfamiliar places.  They may lose objects and be unable to remember steps to find them again.  Sometimes, they accuse others of stealing.  Over time, this symptom may occur more often.

 Compare with normal age-related change: Occasionally misplaced objects but can be traced back later.

8- Decreased ability to judge or judge poorly

People with Alzheimer's may experience changes in their judgment and decision-making.  For example, they may underestimate when dealing with money problems, like handing out large sums of money to telemarketers.  They also pay little attention to dressing properly or keeping themselves clean.

 Compare to normal age-related change: Sometimes bad decisions are made.

9- Retire from work or social activities

People with Alzheimer's may begin to withdraw themselves from hobbies, social activities, work projects or sports.  They don't keep up with their favorite sports team or remember how to exercise a hobby.  They also avoid participating in social activities due to the changes they experience.  They also avoid social activities due to the changes they experience.

 Compare with normal age-related change: Feeling frustrated at times with work, family or social obligations

10- Mood and personality change

 The person's mood and personality may change.  They become confused, suspicious, depressed, scared or anxious.  They can be easily upset at home, at work, with friends, or in places where they are not comfortable.

 Compare with normal age-related change: Create a unique way to do things and become irritable when habits are hindered.
 

III- Why must check early symstom of Alzheimer's disease?

 If you notice that you or someone you know exhibits any of the 10 warning signs of Alzheimer's disease, don't ignore it.  Make an appointment with your doctor.

 With Alzheimer's early diagnosis, people can:

 Benefit from existing therapies - Alzheimer's treatments can reduce symptoms, helping people stay energized for longer.  Patients may also have more opportunities to participate in clinical drug trials to further research and provide better understanding of the disease.

More time to plan for the future - Alzheimer's early diagnosis allows families to discuss and plan care;  transport;  choose a way of life;  discuss financial and legal issues;  balance between work and patient care obligations.

Get effective help and support - Available care and support will give people with Alzheimer's and their families the best possible lives possible.

IV- Behaviors of Alzheimer's patients

Alzheimer's disease causes changes in the brain that lead to changes in the patient's behavior.  Some people with Alzheimer's have become confused or anxious.  Others misunderstand what they see or hear.  It is important to understand that the person who is ill does not act that way on purpose and does not intentionally disturb you.

A-3

These challenging behaviors can interfere with everyday life, have trouble sleeping, and lead to moods of disappointment and stress.  The keys to dealing with these behaviors are: 1) identifying triggers 2) being patient and reacting calmly and positively 3) finding ways to stop these behaviors in the first place.

1- Easy to fight

 Aggressive behavior shown by words (shouting, calling names) or actions (hitting, pushing).  This behavior occurs suddenly, for no apparent reason, or it could be the result of anger.  Whatever the case, it is important to try to figure out what causes the sick person to become angry or upset.  Triggers for aggressive action may be health conditions, noisy environments, or pain.

2- Wander

 It is very common for people with memory impairments to wander and get lost.  They often have an intention or goal in mind, such as searching for a lost object, trying to resume the job they were done before or wanting to "go home" even when they are at home.  However, wandering can be dangerous, resulting in serious injury or death.  Keep your loved one safe and enroll in MedicAlert ® + Alzheimer's Association Safe Return ®, an identification program designed to help find the wandering and lost patient nationwide.  See the Safety Center for more information on roaming and other safety issues.

3- Confusion or anxiety

 The sick person feels confused, anxious, becomes restless and wants to move around or around.  The patient may be frustrated in certain places or focus on details.  They may also follow a certain caregiver to attract their attention and guidance.

 4- Confusion

 The sick person does not recognize familiar people, places, or objects.  They may forget relationships, call family members by different names, or mistake the location of the house.  They may also forget the intended use of familiar objects such as pens or forks.

 5- Illusion

 When someone's Alzheimer's has hallucinations, they see, hear, smell, taste, or feel something that isn't real.  The sick person can see the old friend's face in the curtains or hear people talking.  If the hallucination doesn't cause a problem, you can ignore it.  However, if hallucinations occur frequently, see your doctor to determine if the cause is underlying physical problems.

 6- Repeat

 People with Alzheimer's can say or do something over and over, like repeating a word, question, or action.  In most cases, they may be looking for a feeling of comfort, security, or familiarity.  They can also go back and forth or redo what has just been completed.  This behavior is rarely harmful to the sick person but can be stressful for caregivers.

7- Sunset syndrome and trouble sleeping

 The sick person may experience times when they are more confused, anxious and agitated than usual, starting at sunset and lasting all night.  This is called sunset syndrome.  Experts don't know what causes it, but there are many factors that can contribute to this behavior, like end-of-day exhaustion or a reduced need for sleep, which is very common among the elderly.

8- Suspicious

 Memory impairment and confusion can cause people with Alzheimer's to perceive things in unusual new ways.  The sick person suspects people around them, even accuses them of stealing, cheating or other indecent behavior.  Sometimes, the sick person misinterprets what they see and hear.
