Alzheimer's disease and Mental Health

Alzheimer's disease is an advanced disorder that causes brain cells to waste away (degenerate) and dies. Alzheimer's disease is the most often cause of dementia — a continuous decline in thinking, behavioral and social skills that disturbs a person's ability to function independently. Mental health is the stage of psychological well-being or a lack of mental illness. It is the state of somebody who is "functioning at a satisfactory level of emotional and behavioral adjustment"
