Caption: Alzheimer's patient. Home care helper assisting an elderly woman suffering from Alzheimer's disease. Alzheimer's disease results from atrophy (wasting) of brain tissue, leading to memory loss, confusion and a general lack of control. The incidence of the condition is high, with up to a third of people over the age of 85 affected. There is no cure, and death occurs after several years of decline. Photographed in the Netherlands.
