What is Alzheimer's?

Alzheimer's disease is a progressive neurological disorder that affects memory, thinking, and behavior. It is the most common cause of dementia, leading to a decline in cognitive abilities and daily functioning. At Apex Chiropractic & Wellness Center, we are committed to providing compassionate and effective care for individuals living with Alzheimer's disease.

Understanding Alzheimer's Disease Symptoms

Alzheimer's disease is characterized by a gradual decline in cognitive functions, which can significantly impact daily life. Recognizing the symptoms early can lead to timely intervention and better management. Common symptoms of Alzheimer's disease include:

  • Memory Loss: One of the most noticeable signs is memory loss, especially forgetting recently learned information. Individuals may repeatedly ask the same questions or forget important dates and events.


  • Confusion with Time and Place: People with Alzheimer's often lose track of dates, seasons, and the passage of time. They may also become disoriented in familiar surroundings or forget how they got to a particular place.


  • Difficulty with Problem-Solving and Planning: Completing familiar tasks, managing finances, following recipes, or keeping track of bills can become challenging. Individuals may also struggle to concentrate and take much longer to do things than they did before.


  • Changes in Mood and Personality: Alzheimer's can cause mood swings, including confusion, suspicion, depression, fear, or anxiety. Individuals may become easily upset in places where they are out of their comfort zone.


  • Problems with Speech and Writing: Those with Alzheimer's may have trouble following or joining conversations. They may stop in the middle of a conversation, have difficulty finding the right words, or call things by the wrong name.


  • Decreased or Poor Judgment: Changes in decision-making and judgment can occur, such as poor financial choices or neglecting grooming and hygiene.


  • Withdrawal from Work or Social Activities: People with Alzheimer's might remove themselves from hobbies, social activities, or work projects. They may have trouble keeping up with a favorite sports team or remembering how to complete a beloved hobby.

Recognizing these symptoms and seeking early intervention is crucial for managing Alzheimer's disease effectively. At Apex Chiropractic & Wellness Center, we provide comprehensive care to support individuals and their families through every stage of this journey.
