Alzheimer’s Disease

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, you probably have a lot of questions. At CHI Franciscan Health, our neurologists who specialize in Alzheimer’s care offer expert, compassionate care for you and your family.

What is Alzheimer’s disease?

Alzheimer’s disease, the most common form of dementia among older people, is a brain disorder that worsens over time. It causes loss of memory, decline in general mental functions, capabilities and movement.

Alzheimer’s disease begins slowly with mild signs and symptoms, such as trouble remembering recent events or people’s names. As the disease progresses, people may lose their ability to learn new tasks or become anxious and aggressive. Learn more about Alzheimer’s disease and dementia in our Health Library’s in-depth reports.
