While there is no cure for Alzheimer’s disease, early-onset Alzheimer’s patients are proving that the best treatment for the disease is to stay as active as possible for as long as possible. Early-onset Alzheimer’s is defined as those cases diagnosed in people younger than 65 years. While a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s is depressing at any age, an early-onset Alzheimer’s diagnosis is particularly devastating. Furthermore, it is quite difficult to diagnose early-onset Alzheimer’s, even if the patient displays clear signs of Alzheimer’s. Doctors first assume other diagnoses, and it is only through a process of elimination that Alzheimer’s is eventually diagnosed.
