MENTAL/BEHAVIORAL CASE STUDIES2Mental/Behavioral Case StudiesMy 63-year-old patient, Mr. James, has as of late been determined to have Alzheimer's illness. As of now, he is by all accounts in the early phase of the sickness, and I feel that he would profit by medicine and treatment. He lives with his significant other, and the two are utilized full time. He might want to keep working and living minus all potential limitations. Alzheimer's ailment, the most well-known type of dementia, is a mind malady that continuously annihilates thinking abilities and memory. Although the reason for this malady is obscure, analysts trust that the amassing of the protein amyloid in the mind may add to its onset. Albeit most people determined to have Alzheimer's infection are 65 years old and more seasoned, it is normal to build up the sickness at a more youthful age, like my patient, Mr. James.
