September is the Alzheimer’s Month, do not forget them. But it is important to keep this cause in mind throughout the year. There are many people affected throughout the world. And despite the studies that are done there is still no cure. Therefore, the importance of investment in research must be taken into account.
This disease was discovered in 1906 due to the strange brain tissue of a deceased woman. However, the cause remains unknown. Currently, people around the patient detect it due to loss of memory and disorientation. Later it evolves to loss of fluency in the language, difficulty of movements and need of constant help. Until finally it can not be worth it alone, leaving even to talk, move and recognize.

Alzheimer and the caregivers.

We must remember that as in all diseases, not only the patient suffers but their relatives or friends who are ultimately their caregivers. For their tireless task and the affection with which they treat the sick, while suffering to see how that person they love so much forgets who they are. And for this reason they also need our support.
