Stages of Alzheimer’s

Early Stages – What day is it?

The disease begins in the hippocampus, then spreads to the frontal temporal lobe affecting recent memory, learning of new information, thinking, planning and organization.

Middle Stages – Who are you?

It moves further into the frontal temporal lobe and into the occipital and parietal lobes affecting sensory perception, communication, behaviors, impulse control, judgment and attention to personal appearance.

Late Stages – Who am I?

In the final stages the disease spreads throughout the brain and affects the ability to recognize anyone, including themselves, to control bodily functions and to eat and drink. Eventually, the brain can no longer tell the body what to do.
