New Research Developments for Alzheimer’s and Dementia in the Elderly

Young and elderly femaleDementia, including the most common form Alzheimer’s Disease, and related neurodegenerative conditions are dramatically rising in frequency as people live longer and our population ages,” says Robert Richards, Lead Professor of the Biological Sciences Department at the University of Adelaide.  Researchers at UA have developed a new theory for causes of dementia, involving an out-of-control immune system, according to a publication in the journal Frontiers in Neuroscience.  The cognitive decline associated with dementia can be attributed to the body’s autoimmune inflammatory response, causing brain cells to die.  Symptoms of Alzheimer’s include wandering, repeating questions, forgetting one’s own name and names of family members, inability to groom oneself and carry out other basic tasks.  A-1 Home Care offers the highest quality of dementia care in LA County at the most competitive rates.
