Alzheimer's disease is the most common dementia type and is characterized by a gradual, progressive decline in multiple areas of cognition and function. Early diagnosis is key because it can initiate the process of patients and family adapting to and managing disease symptoms. Moreover, certain pharmacologic interventions can impede symptom progression and significantly improve quality of life.
