Understanding Alzheimer's: The Importance of Carrying a Medical ID Card

What is Alzheimer's Disease?

Alzheimer's disease is a progressive neurological disorder that gradually destroys memory and cognitive abilities, and eventually, the ability to carry out the simplest tasks. It is the most common cause of dementia—a general term for memory loss and other cognitive abilities serious enough to interfere with daily life. Alzheimer's disease accounts for an estimated 60 to 80 percent of dementia cases. It's a condition that typically affects people over 65, but early-onset Alzheimer's can occur in younger individuals as well.

The symptoms of Alzheimer's disease worsen over time, although the rate at which the disease progresses can vary. Early signs may include forgetfulness, especially of recent events or conversations. As the disease progresses, individuals may experience confusion, language difficulties, mood swings, and increased instances of getting lost in familiar places.
