Conclusion

Individuals are usually diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease during the second stage of the disease. The disease is progressive and progresses at different rates with varying symptoms in each individual diagnosed with this disease. Treatment methods may vary with each individual according to their stage and severity of symptoms. There is no cure for Alzheimer's disease, but treatments may help reduce or prolong the development of the signs and symptoms of Alzheimer's disease.
