Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type of dementia. The two terms Alzheimer’s and dementia are often mistakenly used as synonyms. However, dementia is only one of the symptoms that can occur in patients during the course of the disease. The disease, in which plaques accumulate in the brain, usually occurs with increasing age.
Even though this brain disease cannot be cured yet, it is important to recognize the symptoms early in order to improve the patients’ quality of life.
