What are the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease?

Alzheimer's disease generally progresses slowly, so the symptoms may initially not be very noticeable. As the condition progresses, the symptoms vary as different areas of the brain become affected. Common symptoms may include: frequent and persistent memory loss; language difficulties; emotional unpredictability; changes in behavior, personality and mood; confusion and disorientation; and becoming increasingly less able to problem-solve, organize and plan.
