Benefiting the San Antonio Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association
Having personally experienced the devastating effects of Alzheimer’s, this is a cause very close to our hearts.
The Alzheimer’s Association strives to eliminate the disease through the advancement of research, provide and enhance care and support for all affected and reduce the risk of dimentia through the promotion of brain health. Formed in 1980, the Alzheimer's Association is the world's leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer's care, support and research.
Facts about Alzheimer’s:
- Alzheimer's is the most common form of dementia, a general term for memory loss and other intellectual abilities serious enough to interfere with daily life. Alzheimer's disease accounts for 50 to 80 percent of dementia cases.
- Alzheimer's is not a normal part of aging. Alzheimer's is not just a disease of old age - up to 5% of people with the disease have early onset Alzheimer's (also known as younger-onset), which often appears when someone is in their 40s or 50s.
- Alzheimer's worsens over time. Alzheimer's is a progressive disease, where dementia symptoms gradually worsen over a number of years. In its early stages, memory loss is mild, but with late-stage Alzheimer's, individuals lose the ability to carry on a conversation and respond to their environment.
- Alzheimer's is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. Those with Alzheimer's live an average of eight years after their symptoms become noticeable to others, but survival can range from four to 20 years, depending on age and other health conditions.
- Alzheimer's has no cure. Treatments for symptoms are available and research continue and, although current treatments cannot stop Alzheimer's from progressing, they can temporarily slow the worsening of dementia symptoms and improve quality of life for patients and their caregivers.
Today, there is a worldwide effort under way to find better ways to treat the disease, delay its onset, and prevent it from developing. Learn more about the Alzheimer’s Association >>
