Return to First QuestionsHow fast does Alzheimer’s disease progress?
Alzheimer's disease affects each individual differently. The symptoms, the order in which they appear and the duration of each stage of the disease vary greatly from person to person.
In most cases, the disease progresses slowly, and the symptoms of each stage may overlap, often making the move from one stage to another quite subtle. The duration of the disease is usually seven to ten years but may be much longer in some people.
