    Alzheimer's Disease

    An age-related, non-reversible brain disorder that develops over a period of years.

Alzheimer's disease is one of a group of disorders called dementias that are characterized by cognitive and behavioral problems. It is the most common cause of dementia among people age 65 and older.
