The good news is we've been hearing lately about some medicines which reduce a person's chance of getting Alzheimer's Disease.
According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, the bad news is the majority of families do not recognize the signs of mild Alzheimer's in their loved ones.
Some of the symptoms are not remembering recent events, becoming easily lost in a familiar neighborhood, failing to grasp the meaning of conversations and becoming confused over days and dates.
Seek help for these problems early, there is help available.
