These sections provide guidelines, information and resource links for managing Alzheimer's
disease. The introductory texts are written for nonspecialists. Additional detail
of a more technical nature is provided through links within the texts. Our goal
is to provide all readers with appropriate and usable information. We also wish
to use this forum to create an alliance of patients, family members, caregivers,
physicians and research scientists. People who have been affected personally by
Alzheimer's often want to know how they can help, by participating as research subjects.
Researchers in turn have much to learn from patients, families and caregivers. Please
contact us with your comments
Basic facts about the disease, including its prevalence, societal impact, symptoms
