The findings of this study can be found in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease.

Alzheimer’s Disease is a form of dementia that interferes with an elderly person’s memory, behavior and thinking.  You may recall an older adult who has trouble remembering newly learned information, or perhaps a story of someone’s grandmother wandering down the street late at night comes to mind.  In advanced stages of this dementia, it is not uncommon for someone to forget his address, the names of his children, or regular routines like brushing his teeth or taking a shower.  If you have an elderly loved one who has Alzheimer’s, it would be crucially important to find in-home care for him, especially if he lives alone.
