Alzheimer’s Disease is a form of dementia usually associated with age and genetics. Although not proven by research, it is suggested that Alzheimer’s may occur more often in those who have had a history of head trauma or hypertension. In the early stages of Alzheimer’s, the affected individual can carry on independently with most daily activities. With the companionship and assistance of a caregiver, the individual can keep appointments, remember to take medication, and plan social events or manage money. As the disease progresses, however, more intensive care is required for the well-being of the person. Signs of heightened irritability, delusions, and hallucinations will show; if the person with Alzheimer’s is living at home with family, this may become difficult to live with. It is even more dangerous if the person is living alone.
