Were you looking for information on Alzheimer's? Alltimers is a common misspelling of Alzheimer's.
Alzheimer's is the most common form of dementia seen in older people. This condition is named for German physician Dr. Alois Alzheimer, and affects 5 percent of people who are 65 to 74 years old. People with Alzheimer's typically experience memory loss, deteriorating language skills, and impaired judgment. The older a person gets, the more likely he or she is to develop the condition. While medications exist to help improve Alzheimer's symptoms, there currently is no cure.
