How long it can take to treat this disease?

Sue

Hi "Alzheimer": That is a question that is individual to each person and in fact, there really is not much to do in terms of treatment as the disease has no known cure. One person may have the disease for a few years and another might have symptoms for decades.

You are in the right spot by accessing the ADEAR educational materials. The best thing to do is get your loved one an assessment to learn as much as you can about the disease and the estimate of where the person is in the disease process.

Good luck to you and thanks for writing!

Sue
