• Explores the relationship between Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

• Examines what happens in a brain affected by Alzheimer’s. • Details the risk factors for and three general stages of the disease.

• Identifies FDA-approved treatments available to treat some symptoms.

• Looks ahead to what’s on the horizon for Alzheimer’s research.

• Offers helpful Alzheimer’s Association resources.
