Dear Abby: More and more of my friends are trying to work and take care of parents who have Alzheimer’s disease. One of my closest friends’ husbands was recently diagnosed with it. He is only 62. I thought Alzheimer’s was only memory loss, but it seems like so much more. His personality has changed. She tells me he gets angry with her when she tries to help him.

What exactly is Alzheimer’s, and what can be done to stop it?
