Alzheimer’s Disease & Cognitive Disorders
Increasing age is the leading risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease, which is just one of the dementias Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health treats. There’s not much you can do about getting older, but we can help you get wiser about brain disease.
Memory loss is the most common sign of Alzheimer’s disease, but it’s not the only symptom. Others include difficulty concentrating, problems with words, poor judgment, social withdrawal, mood changes and a tendency to misplace things.
Know the facts and take heart: Memory loss is not an inevitable part of aging. While there is no cure today, treatments are available to maximize quality of life and manage symptoms.
Cleveland Clinic Nevada is committed to world-class care and proud to have earned the following designations:
- Exploratory Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center by the NIH (Nevada’s first and only)
- Research Center of Excellence from the Lewy Body Dementia Association
