Stages of Alzheimer's

Click the following images to learn more about the three stages of Alzheimer's.

Stage 1
Stage 1: Early (Mild)

In early-stage Alzheimer’s, a person may still do most everyday activities, but they will have memory lapses and forget things like where places or things are and what something or someone is called.

This is a time to start thinking about care down the road and making decisions with the patient while they are still cognizant enough to help in these processes.

Stage 2
Stage 2: Middle (Moderate)

Middle-stage Alzheimer’s is the longest stage, and it can last for a few
years. A person in middle-stage will need more help from others. The
patient may be more confused, get easily frustrated or upset, or act in ways that they normally would not. During this stage, damage that occurs to nerve cells in the brain because of the disease can make many tasks difficult for the patient.

Slide 4
Stage 3: Late (Severe)

Late-stage Alzheimer’s comes with severe symptoms. Patients at this stage lose the ability to respond to many cues within their environments, and they often cannot carry out a typical conversation or control the movement of their body. Patients in this stage need around the clock care and may show signs of major personality changes as well as inability to communicate with those around them.

Brain Health

Cognitive health is how well you can think, learn, and remember things.
Brain health can be affected by changes in your brain such as trauma,
injury, mood disorders, addiction, or disease. Most of these cannot be changed, but working on your cognitive health and memory as you age
can help.
