What are the things no one tells you about Alzheimer’s disease?

Alzheimer’s disease is challenging for the victims and their family. Moreover, Alzheimer’s disease requires a lot of patience from caregivers, which can become challenging even for seasoned professionals.

As this disease declines the cognitive ability of people with the condition, they can do anything beyond imagination. Such behaviour arises from the loss of inhibitions, which makes people with the condition go wild. If you have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, it is not uncommon that you end up roaming streets with no idea of destination. You may also forget how to speak or take a bath.

You should also expect delusions and hallucinations that may make you believe things that are not real or have no filter. Also, you may forget memories and find it difficult to remember your family and friends.

Alzheimer’s disease can be deadly if not controlled. In terminal cases, the victims are advised to live under the supervision of caregivers. As the victims slowly lose their sense of judgement, it becomes impossible for them to carry on even the basic day-to-day activities without assistance.

But there is always some good in bad. Alzheimer’s disease is a good chance for people to pursue new passions. If you were never good at drawing, you may find it entertaining to paint a portrait once in a while. Moreover, Alzheimer’s disease brings family members close as they would want to make many memories together.
