Summary Alzheimer's disease is a very common condition in the elderly, affecting millions of people worldwide. It is a devestating progressive, degenerative disorder that attacks the brain's nerve cells resulting in loss of memory, thinking and lauguage skills and behavioural changes. As a result, it presents some unique challenges to healthcare professionals. In this comprehensive and compassionate program we examine exactly what this disease is, the effects of medication, the mental symptoms (including paranoia, withdrawn behaviour and mood changes), and explain clear-cut, practical strategies on how to and how not to communicate with the patient to achieve effective and empathetic results
