What is late-onset Alzheimer’s disease?

ANSWER

This is the most common form of Alzheimer's disease, which happens to people age 65 and older. It may or may not run in families. So far, researchers haven’t found a particular gene that causes it. No one knows for sure why some people get it and others don’t.
