- Alzheimer disease is a progressive degenerative disease that affects cognition, the ability to perform activities of daily living, and behavior. Cognitive, behavioral, and functional decline associated with progressive Alzheimer disease places a considerable burden on caregivers and the health care system. Earlier detection, better diagnosis, earlier intervention, and increased treatment may help reduce this burden.
