Question:

What is Alzheimer's Disease?

Answer:

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a brain disorder most commonly found among older people that seriously affects a person's ability to carry out daily activities due to cell loss in the parts of the brain that control memory, language, reason, and judgment.   There is an extensive amount of information available to help you understand what AD is.  I would encourage you to explore the links available on the Netwellness site for more information about AD.
