Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer’s Disease affects the brain’s tissues and gradually destroys an individual’s ability to reason, remember, imagine and learn. It is marked by abnormal plaques and neurofibrillary tangles of brain cells.

Though the exact causes for Alzheimer’s are yet to be understood, researchers have been able to make some progress in this direction. For more information, join the Alzheimer’s support group today!

1. Which specialist should I consult for Alzheimer's Disease?

You should consult a Neurologist.

2. What is the caregiver's role during the early stages of an illness like Alzheimer's?

In the early stages of a dementiating illness, such as dementia due to Parkinson's or Alzheimer's, the patient suffers emotionally as they are aware of their inabilities. Family members are often not as aware as the patient, of daily difficulties. Patients may feel depressed and alone. Family members need to be supportive during these difficult times and acknowledge that they understand the fears of the patient.

3. What is the caregiver's role during the later stages of a dementia?

As the illness progresses the burden of the disease shifts to the caregiver, who must now care for their loved one without any failure.
