MENTAL/BEHAVIORAL CASS STUDIES 2 Mental/Behavioral Case Studies Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia. Alzheimer’s commonly occurs in the elderly. The first signs of the onset of Alzheimer’s is a gradual decline in cognitive functioning such as memory loss, logical thinking, performing basic tasks, and judgment. It may become difficult to communicate with your grandmother. Their mood and personality can also be affected. Unfortunately, the cause of Alzheimer’s is unknown, and it is currently incurable. The best treatment for those individuals affected by Alzheimer’s is adequate nursing care where there is both physical and emotional support.
