The Alzheimer's Issue

Alzheimer's is the biggest form of dementia that exists.Alzheimer's is a general term for memory loss and other intellectual disabilities that are serious enough to interfere with daily life. Alzheimer's accounts for 50 to 80 percent of dementia cases.

With Alzheimer's the dementia symptoms gradually worsen over the years. They start with mild memory loss, and then at the later stages they become so bad that the patient cannot as much as carry on a conversation.

My grandmother suffers from dementia Alzheimer's. Sometimes all of the pieces of the puzzle just don't seem to fit right in her mind.

She has trouble with day to day obstacles. She can't remember what happened 5 minutes back but she can remember everything from 15 years back and beyond.

I chose to interview my grandmother to talk about an aspect that we deal with on a regular basis, but never really open up and talk about. This aspect is better known as Alzheimer's.
