Alzheimer’s disease is a neurodegenerative disorder with enormous personal, family, and public health consequences. Affecting primarily older individuals, the disease progressively eliminates the self and robs the family of the person they cherished. Affected individuals are not able to make a meaningful contribution to society and require increasingly intense health care and personal maintenance services as the disease progresses.
