Abstract

Comparison of Traumatic Events in People to Alzheimer's Patients

Alzheimer’s disease is more common than any other disease known, with no cure in the near future. This research addresses how traumatic events may affect Alzheimer’s patients in comparison to people who do not have Alzheimer’s disease. By preventing an Alzheimer’s patient from a trauma, the symptoms of the disease do not progress as quickly. In the collection of information, the use of articles relating to traumatic events and those related to Alzheimer’s patients were used. By comparing the case studies of 4 or 5 people affected by a trauma, Alzheimer’s patient symptoms seemed to progress more quickly and were unable to put the events behind them. There is not much on the topic of how traumatic events affect Alzheimer’s patients. Therefore, this research could open the door for more studies. Within the future, hopefully more studies will be performed in regard to Alzheimer’s patients.
