Millions of people have Alzheimer’s disease, and most of the time, by the time it is caught, it is too late.
According to the Alzheimer’s Association website, there is no cure — there are medications to help the symptoms, but they only work while the disease is moderate. The more the disease progresses, the less the medications actually help. These people who have been or will be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s could be our mothers, fathers or grandparents. It could happen to anyone, so it is important to watch our loved ones so that we can catch the disease early.
