November is Alzheimer’s Awareness Month. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia and causes problems with memory, thinking, and behavior. Alzheimer’s disease is not a normal part of aging. Someone with Alzheimer’s disease may show signs of:

  • Memory loss that disrupts daily life, such as getting lost in a familiar place or repeating questions.
  • Difficulty completing familiar tasks.
  • Confusion with time or place.
  • Change in mood, personality, or behavior.

If you or a loved one shows signs listed above, consult your health care provider. For more
