This poster calls attention to Alzheimer.
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a degenerative brain disorder. The disease breaks down and destroys brain cells and the neurons
that connect brain cells to one another. This damage causes a decline in memory, behavior, and mental capabilities.
Every person’s journey with AD is different. For some, the disease progresses slowly and leaves mental function largely intact for several years. For others, AD is aggressive and quickly robs people of their memory. In the end, AD becomes severe enough to disrupt day-to-day life. In latter stages, patients will need almost constant care.
