Were you looking for information about Alzheimer's? Alzemers is a common misspelling of Alzheimer's.
Alzheimer's is the most common form of dementia in older people. It is characterized by memory loss, deteriorating language skills, and impaired judgment. Named for Dr. Alois Alzheimer (a German physician), 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 Alzheimer's. While people may get Alzheimer's disease at a younger age, it is much less common. Treatments exist to help improve the symptoms of this condition, but there is currently no cure. After being diagnosed, people with Alzheimer's disease typically live for an average of 8 to 10 years.
