It is a slow killer that forces its victims, and their love ones and caregivers, to endure the progressive loss of mental capacity that leaves them, at the end, mentally alone, helpless, and often completely unaware of who they were or the things they accomplished during their lifetimes.
As a caregiver to an elderly parent for the last four years of her life I can attest to its cruelty.
