What are the Effects of Alzheimer’s Disease?
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type of dementia in the UK affecting 62 per cent of those diagnosed. It is an irreparable, progressive disorder of the brain that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills, and, eventually, the simplest tasks become impossible.
The deterioration in brain cell tissue and connections progress and impairments develop including:
- Learning and memory
- Thinking and planning
- Speaking and understanding speech
- Sensing where your body is in relation to nearby objects
