I will pay for the following article Relationship between Dementia And Alzheimers Disease. The work is to be 12 pages with three to five sources, with in-text citations and a reference page. Memory loss experienced by an individual is not only the sole indicator of an individual who is suffering from this disorder. This is because memory loss is a normal issue experienced by an individual as he/she ages. There are various symptoms as well as causes of dementia, but the disorder is diagnosable and treatable to a certain extent.
The discovery of dementia can be dated back to the period of 1906 when an individual recognized as Alois Alzheimer was describing the mental state of a patient and stated that that the patient was suffering from dementia even before she was 50 years old (alzforum.org, 2015). Alzheimer came to this conclusion after conducting a post-mortem of the patient after she died. During the autopsy, Alzheimer figured out that her brain contained plaques as well as tangles and this is the time when German medical professionals started believing that this disease was genetic in nature.
The mental disorder which is recognized as Alzheimer’s disease is most commonly confused with dementia and both the terms are used in an interchangeable manner to refer to each other. There is a lack of research on the difference and link between the two conditions and due to this, both are confused with each other. The relationship between these two conditions is that one is the symptom and the other one is the cause of the symptom. The symptom is dementia and one of the causes of this symptom is Alzheimer’s disease (Burns, 2001). Dementia is itself not a disorder. it is a symptom that may be caused by the disorder called Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s disease is one of the various forms of dementia in which an individual experiences symptoms including failure to control thinking, loss of memory as well as language-related disabilities.
Dementia is a progressive symptom that happens to worsen with the passage of time.
