New research is showing that people who carry the gene for Alzheimer’s show changes in their brains beginning in childhood. The gene is one factor in the risk of developing disease but other factors such as poor diet, lack of exercise, smoking and high blood pressure all contribute as well.

Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia. It is a progressive disease that affects memory, thinking and behavior. Most people suffering from the illness are over age 65, but early onset Alzheimer’s can affect people as young as 40. Diagnosis remains complicated in that there is no single test to determine that a person has the disease. Most of these people will need memory care for seniors and senior assisted living to be able to live their daily lives. You can check out sites like www.oceanhillsseniorliving.com/living-options/assisted-living/ to find living options for people who have this disease. Here also is a great place to go summerfieldencinitasmc.com/community-life/ if you need more info.

People with this disease have trouble to keep with their normal life and is hard for them to manage house cleaning is hard for them and will require the assistance of  house cleaning services. Some of them are in the best memory care (such as dementia care), nursing home, senior living center, or in assisted living homes like Chelsea Senior Living assisted living Rockville Centre, NY, where they can received special attention and care.

The substantial economic costs are expected to greatly increase in coming years. Currently the combined medical and lost earnings costs are $33 billion and expected to increase to as much as $293 billion by 2040.
