The 7 Stages of Alzheimer's
Understanding a loved one's behavior can be challenging with a progressive disease such as Alzheimer's. Although there is no manual, sometimes understanding where one is within the span of the disease can be beneficial to providing the right care.
Dan Sewell, MD, Professor of Clinical Psychology at UCSD and member of the ActivCare Medical Advisory Board, recently presented a talk that included the seven stages of Alzheimer's Disease and what to expect at each stage. This summary helps outlines what happens as the disease progresses and the approximate period of each stage.
We have extracted that section of Dr. Sewell's presentation in the link below.
