Our brains change as we age. Most of us will notice that we don't think quite as quickly and have occasional problems remembering things. But Alzheimer's disease is more than that. Alzheimer's actually destroys brain cells, leading to problems with memory, thinking and behavior. Alzheimer's can be a painful process for loved ones to watch as it progresses.
But there is hope. We live in a time of accelerating scientific discovery. In the last decade, more has been learned about Alzheimer's disease than in the previous ninety years. At Life Care Centers of America, we are proud to be part of these new frontiers of Alzheimer's care.
We know how difficult it can be as your loved one forgets things – precious memories, even familiar surroundings. That's why we offer full support for Alzheimer's patients, doing everything we can to make life easier on your loved one ... and for you.
