Running Header: MENTAL/BEHAVIORAL CASE STUDIES 2 Memo To: Jenny Stanton From: Nicholas Ford cc: Windy Tanner Date: Re: Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia in Elderly Adults Jenny Stanson was referred to my department with concerns regarding her grandmother's changing behavior. According to Jenny this type of behavior is out of the ordinary for her grandmother. She is concerned that her grandmother is maybe suffering from early stages of Alzheimer. She would like some more information regarding Alzheimer’s disease, to find out if that was she is truly suffering from. There are three stages of Alzheimer’s: primary, secondary, and tertiary. Primary stage of Alzheimer’s people often find their mind wondering, forgetting things they just read, names, and even misplace things they normally wouldn’t (Stages of Alzheimer’s, 2017). In the primary stage, it is often best to assist the person in the areas they need, help them if they are seeking guidance, have patience with them as they may require more and more help as the disease progresses (Early-Stage Caregiving, 2017).
