Alzheimer's is a progressive disease that eventually affects most if not all of the brain's functions. It is this progression through the brain, following virtually the same path in everyone afflicted, that causes the stages of Alzheimer's disease. The disease kills brain cells, beginning in the hypothalamus and steadily advancing into other areas of the brain. As different areas of the brain are affected, different cognitive and physical functions, including memory and balance, are lost or impaired.
We have selected products for each of the three stages that are appropriate to that stage. We include activities that a person in that stage can do and is likely to enjoy, but will also stimulate brain functioning to help slow the advance of the disease.
