June is Brain & Alzheimer's Awareness Month

                           June is Brain & Alzheimer's Awareness Month:

Worldwide, there are at least 44 million people living with Alzheimer's and other dementias. It is found in at least one among 10 persons who are more than 80-year-old and one out of four persons who are above 90 years. In India, there are nearly 50 lakh dementia patients of which, roughly 70 to 80 per cent have Alzheimer’s. The Indian numbers are expected to double by 2030, and the costs involved are expected to increase three times.Everyone who has a brain is at risk to develop Alzheimer's—but everyone can help to fight it.  Now is the time to get involved. Together we can end Alzheimer's.

Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) is the most common type of dementia, in which the mental ability of persons gradually declines and reaches a stage where it becomes difficult for them to lead a normal life. With the disease progressing gradually, patients find themselves more and more dependant on their immediate family members for survival. The most striking feature of AD is the loss of short-term memory among patents. It starts as minor forgetfulness and progresses into a disorder in which persons can’t even identify their near and dear ones. Patients lose both visual and verbal memories such as forgetting telephonic conversations, names of recent acquaintances, misplacing objects and losing way in known surroundings.
