      Hi Herman,

      Quick response. Alzheimer disease is characterized not only by memory
      problem. There a lot more requirements to Dx this disease, memory problem
      alone is not Alzheimer. There also need further higher cognitive
      impairments such as aphasia(language impairment), apraxia (motor impairment),
      agnosia (recognition impairment) and impairment in executive function i.e
      planning, organizing, sequencing or abstracting.

      Their ability to focus or concentrate is severely affected as well. So I
      don't think that is better. Mind and citta are very complicated phenomena.

      Best wishes,
