The three stages of Alzheimer's Disease

                                                 Mild, the beginning stage
     Mild Alzheimer's Disease is the beginning stage.  People with mild alzheimer's disease often seem healthy, but they are actually having trouble making sense of the world around them.  It takes time for an observer (someone that is around or knows the Alzheimer's victum better than anyone else) to realize that something is wrong because the initial symptoms are often confused with the changes that take place in normal aging.  Symptoms and early signs of Alzheimer's Disease may include:
