About Alzheimer's Disease and Other Dementias
If you or someone you know is concerned about memory problems, you’re not alone. But is what you’re experiencing normal, or something more serious?
As you age, some forgetting is natural and inevitable, but Alzheimer’s disease is not a part of normal aging. The fact is, Alzheimer’s disease is more than forgetting where you put your keys. Symptoms include loss of memory that affects day-to-day function, difficulty with regular tasks, and changes in mood and behaviour.
There are also other types of dementia. Alzheimer’s disease is just the most common form. Some causes of dementia are very treatable, so it’s important to find out what’s at the root of your concerns.
