Many older people forget someone’s name or misplace things from time to time. This kind of forgetfulness is normal. But, forgetting how to get home, getting confused in places a person knows well, or asking questions over and over can be signs of a more serious problem. The person may have Alzheimer’s disease, a disease of the brain that begins slowly and gets worse over time.

This colorful, easy-to-read booklet helps readers learn about Alzheimer’s disease:

  • What it is
  • Signs of the disease
  • When it is important to see a doctor
  • Treatment
  • Research studies
  • How to get help caring for a person with the disease
