Our memories hold the key to our past. Being able to accurately recall a lifetime of events, milestones, lessons, relationships and so much more is truly priceless, though this ability is not often given much thought. Likewise, being able to complete basic daily routines with independence as connections between brain and body are properly made is seldom paid much mind. Perhaps, that is, until such recollection and processing becomes compromised. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia and affects the areas of the brain responsible for thought-processing, behavior and memory. It impacts the neuron’s ability to carry messages to different parts of the brain, thus impeding overall functioning. With Alzheimer’s being a progressive disease, the ability to recall information, complete daily tasks, and communicate effectively deteriorates and worsens over time. Since Alzheimer’s has such a profound impact on brain function, the daily lives of those affected are irrevocably altered, making independent living increasingly difficult.
