The Origins and Ramifications of Alzheimer’s Disease Aliois Alzheimer (1864-1915), a German neuropathologist, first identified Alzheimer's disease as an advancing degenerative disease of the brain in 1905. In over 100 years the medical community has still not found a definitive cause for Alzheimer's disease. At this time, other than the identifiable genetic components relative to all sufferers of AD, the cause still remains maddeningly mysterious. The two forms of Alzheimer's disease, sporadic and familial, primarily affect two parts of the brain where it causes irreparable damage. Its relentless progress through seven stages averages out at a survival rate of 15 years for those who suffer from it (US National Library of Medicine

" Alzheimer's Disease: A Grand-daughter's Voice" When I decided to write this essay, I had to do a little research. I discovered a few things that I did not know. There are about 5.4 million people living with Alzheimer's. It is the sixth leading cause of death in the US and the only cause of death among the top 10 in the US that cannot be prevented or cured. When we hear about Alzheimer’s disease, we usually think of older people, though middle aged people can have an early onset type of this disease.

| Alzheimer’s: How It Affects the Individual | | | [Type the author name] | 8/21/2012 | | Alzheimer’s: How It Affects the Individual It is said to be that more than 36 million people worldwide have Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Alzheimer’s disease is a form of dementia; it affects memory, motor skills, thinking and other basic skills that we use every day. It accounts for 50-80% of all dementia cases. AD affects the individual’s life and those close to the individual. It can be taxing emotionally, physically and financially.
Dr. Barry Reisberg a clinical director of the New York University School of Medicine’s Silberstein Aging and Dementia Research Center developed a seven stage Framework on the stages of Alzheimer’s disease. (transitional statement): More than 500 leading researchers and dedicated advocates gathered at the Alzheimer’s Disease Research Summit 2015: Path to Treatment and Prevention with one goal in mind—to ramp up a scientific agenda aimed at treating and preventing Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and related dementias by 2025. (National institute of Aging 2015) III.Conclusion A. Restate thesis and review/recap/summarize main points (the exact words used to preview) 1. Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive, degenerative and irreversible brain disorder. 2.
The Alzheimer’s association has made improving the quality of care for persons with Alzheimer’s disease and expanding access to home and community based services top priorities. They have also endorsed several important pieces of pending legislation that will help with the rising cost of the caregiving system. Currently, there are seven out of ten people with Alzheimer’s disease living at home and families are in need of support with annual rising cost of health care needs. Although hope for Alzheimer’s seems bleak, there are still some strides that can be made. A better understanding of the disease, improved healthcare and treatment, and huge discoveries in science to delay the onset and prevention of the disease can lead to a future where Alzheimer’s is just a memory.
