Are you or a loved one at risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease or dementia? Make sure you know the difference. Dementia is a category of disorders that affects your brain’s ability to function. It can make it difficult to remember things, think for yourself or control your emotions.

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia. This disease slowly affects your brain, causing you to lose mental capacity, speech and other physical abilities over time. Though Alzheimer’s disease is a form of dementia, treatment for the disease is not generic. A proper diagnosis is essential to prevent significant mental loss.
