The Famous Faces of Alzheimer's

Monday, 20 Jun 2011 11:22 AM

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia. Common symptoms include loss of memory, inability to formulate new memories, confusion, irritability, and withdrawal.

These symptoms tend to appear in a person’s sixties or seventies and progress relatively rapidly. In the most advanced stages of the disease, bodily function is lost, ultimately leading to death.

No known cure is available for Alzheimer’s disease, but current medicinal treatments can offer minor symptomatic benefits.

Alzheimer’s patients require extensive assistance from friends and caregivers.

Famous Alzheimer Patients include:

• Ronald Reagan (former U.S. President)
• Perry Como (singer)
• Sugar Ray Robinson (boxer)
• Barry Goldwater (politician)
• Winston Churchill (politician)
• Frank Sinatra (singer)
• Henry Ford (car mogul)
• Jonathan Swift (author)
• Ralph Waldo Emerson (poet/essayist)
