Alheimer

Were you looking for information on Alzheimer's? Alheimer is a common misspelling of Alzheimer's.
 
Named for German physician Dr. Alois Alzheimer, this disease affects 5 percent of people ages 65 to 74. The older a person gets, the more likely he or she is to develop the condition.
 
Alzheimer's is typically characterized by memory loss, deteriorating language skills, and impaired judgment. An early diagnosis will help patients and their families plan for the future while the affected person is still able to participate in the decision-making process.
 
While treatments exist to help relieve symptoms, there currently is no cure for Alzheimer's.
