Were you looking for information about Alzheimer's disease? Alzhiemers disease is a common misspelling of Alzheimer's disease.
Alzheimer's disease is the most common form of dementia among older people. People with the condition typically show signs of memory loss, confusion, and impaired judgment. Other symptoms include restlessness, a deterioration of language skills, and mood swings.
The disease progresses slowly, and the course of the disease can vary widely from one patient to the next. Although the condition is not a normal part of aging, a person becomes more likely to develop it as he or she gets older. Young people can also develop it, but this is much less common.
