A growing body of evidence suggests that the prevalence of cognitive impairment or Alzheimer’s disease may be two to three times higher among older African Americans than in older non-Hispanic whites. 10 Yet results from large population-based studies of the incidence of Alzheimer’s disease (that is, new cases of disease) have been mixed.

Background and context for interpretation of the data are contained What is Alzheimer’s disease.

Alzheimer disease is a degenerative disorder that affects people aged more than 65 years old. This is the commonest type of Alzheimer’s and is also called late-onset Alzheimer’s disease. On the other hand, Alzheimer’s can affect younger people (around the fifties) and in this case, it is called early-onset   @article{osti_, title = {SPECT in Alzheimer`s disease and the dementias}, author = {Bonte, F J}, abstractNote = {Among 90 patients with a clinical diagnosis of Alzheimer`s disease (AD), two subgroups were identified for special study, including 42 patients who had a history of dementia in one or more first-degree relatives, and 14 who had a diagnosis of early :// The incidence of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease appear to double every 5 years [7].

This finding indicates that dementia and Alzheimer’s disease are conditions which have an even closer relationship with the fundamental Gompertzian kinetics of aging than many other common diseases [8].

Alzheimer’s disease caregiver. Review of Literature Literature exists in all aspects of the disease. Depression has been the most frequently studied mental health symptom for Alzheimer’s disease caregivers (Schulz, O’rien, Bookwala, & Fleissner, ).

Evidence strongly supports that Alzheimer’s disease caregivers are more depressed than Dementia is the term applied to a group of symptoms that negatively impact memory, but Alzheimer’s is a progressive disease of the brain that slowly causes impairment in memory and cognitive.
