How does Alzheimer´s disease affect memory?

Acceptance

Because patients with Alzheimer's disease have a tendency to experience long-term memory as short-term, they may regress back to other times, other places in their lives. These remembrances of "yesterday as today" are very real for them and the only choice you have is to accept that this is now their world." Do your best to comfort and console them, especially with their difficult memories.
