1. Memory Loss
Memory loss is easily the most associated symptom of Alzheimer’s disease although it isn’t often how people think it is. Many are under the impression that with the onset of Alzheimer’s that the memory simply begins to fade, and while that is true in some cases, and in most over time, at the beginning, it is new information that is usually the type that suffers.
Alzheimer’s changes usually first develop in the part of the brain that affects learning. Thus it is usually new learned information that can be difficult to retain while older, more ingrained memories are usually left more or less intact. However, it is important to note that with no cure for Alzheimer's and the progressive nature of the disease, that in time, even older memories are likely to begin to fade.
