A View of Early Alzheimer's Disease

Sometimes Azheimer's disease is diagnosed after someone has unexpected difficulty with some aspect of a job that had previously been routine. Changes in memory and other changes in cognition can be detected early. Alzheimer's disease can occur in adults as early as age 60.

It is quite possible for the person with Alzheimer's disease to be involved in their own care when the diagnosis is made early. While there is no cure currently for Alzheimer's disease, cholinesterase inhibitors is a class of drugs used to slow the progression of Alzheimer's disease.
