Alzheimer’s disease is a condition that gradually destroys the brain’s ability to remember, think and reason. The Alzheimer’s Association shares 10 early signs of Alzheimer’s disease. Take this true/false quiz to test your Alzheimer’s awareness.

Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive condition that starts slowly, but gradually steals away the ability to carry out even simple tasks. Although there is no cure for Alzheimer’s, there are treatments available to slow the progression.

If you or someone you know has any of the early signs of Alzheimer’s disease, encourage him or her to talk to a health care provider right away for evaluation and to learn more.
