No, most of it is genetic...so it would be passed in your family. Some environmental triggers are responsible for its onset but research has yet to understand all these components of the disease and its causes. Now why on earth would you want it?


CharJ,
Hmmm, I think you already have it...you just forgot!

Although I don't know why anyone would want to get a disease that removes the memory and functions from them, I regret to tell you that there is no way you can "contract" alzheimers. I guess you are going to have to wait until you are amongst the elderly population to see if you are one of the unfortunate that gets it.

I think you should rethink wanting to get this illness. Go to a nursing home and visit with some of the elderly. Then look into the "locked" alzheimers ward. It's really a very sad situation.

No you cannot contract or catch Alzheimers. Read below information on this disease. Why would you want such a devasting disease as Alzheimer's? It destroys the individual and it devastates family and loved ones. Maybe you should go to some nursing homes and see some of these individuals and see what it is like for them and their families and I am sure you will change your mind. If you asked this question to be funny, it is not funny at all and maybe you have too much time on your hands, but I will still go ahead and oblige you with the information below.

Alzheimer's disease is a progressive condition that affects areas of the brain involved in memory, intelligence, judgment, language, and behavior. It is the most common form of mental decline, or dementia, in older adults.

Alzheimer's disease is more severe than the mild memory loss that many people experience as they grow older. Alzheimer's disease also affects behavior, personality, the ability to think clearly, and the ability to carry out daily activities. Close family members usually notice symptoms first, although the person affected also may realize that something is wrong.

What causes Alzheimer's disease?
It is not clear why these changes in the brain occur, but research to discover the cause of Alzheimer's disease is ongoing. Although most people who develop Alzheimer's disease do not have a family history of the condition, you are at increased risk for the condition if a member of your family has it.

As the disease progresses, these symptoms get worse. The person may also develop strange new behaviors and withdraw from family and friends. Hallucinations, delusions, and paranoia are common; some people may become verbally or physically aggressive or abusive. Eventually, the person may forget how to perform basic tasks such as eating, dressing, bathing, using the toilet, or getting up from a bed or chair and walking.

I often wondered if the disease helps people cope. I know the relatives are tormented but the person with the actual disease doesn't seem to be in too much misery. I don't know if that's true, but I have often though about it. Suppose you were hurt buy someone's comment, 5 minutes later you wouldn't remember. Would that be a good thing? But if you had the disease, you couldn't remember the good things either.
People can help you with the depression, just find some help.

If you're stupid enough to ask a question like this, you probably already have it. And even if you got an answer, you wouldn't remember it.....


Rich people employ me
ummmm.....no!!! Are you crazy?


dancinda
that's a very depressing question :(

anyways, Alzheimer's is genetic so, you can't predict weather or not you will get it.


drakelungx
sorry its not a disease you can catch form any one. why would you want that anyway?

I work on an Alzheimer's unit and I promise you do not want it. The answer from Wendy is a very good description of it. It is an awful disease that strips you of all dignity and leaves you wandering around in diapers, most likely ending up in a nursing home. It isn't fun or nice and is horrible on your family all through to the end, costing a fortune for your care. You won't know anyone except the nursing staff; not your children or your grandchildren. You could live this way for many, many years with no mind. At the end you may just fade away. I would rather die gracefully at 40 than to die with this ugly, ugly disease at 80.
