Alzheimer’s disease, a degeneration of the brain, typically occurs in late middle or old age, and is the leading cause of dementia. Alzheimer’s is irreversible and progressive – meaning that it gradually destroys a patient’s memory, ability to perform common tasks and thinking skills. People living with Alzheimer's disease may experience a wide range of feelings including grief, depression, confusion, frustration, anger and fear. Additionally, caring for a relative with Alzheimer’s can bring up feelings of stress, worry, grief, resentment, and guilt, among others. If you or someone close to you is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, a qualified mental health professional can help. Contact one of our specialists today.
