Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer's Disease is defined by the National Institute on Aging as progressive, irreversible declines in memory, performance of routine tasks, time and space orientation, language and communication skills, abstract thinking, and the ability to learn and carry out mathematical calculations. Other symptoms include personality changes and impaired judgement.
The hallmark changes of AD are dense deposits (neuritic plaques) of a protein fragment called beta amyloid outside the nerve cells (neurons) in the brain, and twisted strands (neurofibrillary tangles) of a protein called tau inside the cells. There is a loss of these neurons' connections (synapses) with other neurons in areas of the brain that are vital to memory and other mental abilities. This process is thought to also cause an inflammatory response, which has lead to the investigation of anti-inflammatory medications as an adjunctive therapy. In addition to the loss of neurons, there are also lower levels of chemicals (neurotransmitters) in the brain that carry complex messages back and forth between millions of nerve cells.
A team approach utilizing the expertise of the primary health care provider, nursing, and social work together with the patient, significan't others, and caregivers is usually the most effective approach in treating AD. Other disciplines may, at times, be very important members of this team, including physical or occupational therapy, speech therapy, psychiatry, case management, support groups, clergy and hospice.
