In the medical field, Alzheimer’s disease is known as a type of brain disorder that is progressive, irreversible, degenerative neurological disease. It is characterized by loss of cognitive function and disturbance in behavior. Often death occurs due to complications, such as pneumonia, malnutrition, and dehydration.
