Alzheimer's disease and other diseases that cause dementia are physical, progressive and degenerative diseases affecting the brain. Alzheimer's is the most common cause of dementia symptoms.
Alzheimer's is characterized by memory loss, communication difficulties, disorientation regarding time and place and changes in personality and behaviour. Each of these symptoms affects a person's ability to function independently.
