Alzheimer's disease is a chronic, progressive neurological disorder that causes profound cognitive and behavioral impairments. It is the most common cause of dementia in older adults. A person's genetics, lifestyle, and environment play a part in the development of the disease, but the cause of Alzheimer's disease is not known. There is no cure for Alzheimer's disease and attempts at finding easily applied preventative measures have not been successful. The treatment for Alzheimer's disease at this point focuses on symptomatic relief.
