Alzheimer's disease is a chronic neurodegenerative disease that destroys brain cells, causing thinking ability and memory to deteriorate over time. Alzheimer's disease is not a normal part of aging, and is irreversible.

More than 1 million Canadians have some sort of connection to dementia. Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause for dementia, accounting for 60-80% of all diagnoses.
