Alzheimer's Caregivers Support Group

Dr.Alzheimer was of German origin who initially excelled as a professor of Psychology in Breslau. Later in Munich his interest in histopathology eventually created him a giant in this area. Together with Franz Nissl they established the pathologic anatomy of mental illness. Alzheimer published several treatises on cerebro arteriosclerosis in 1904 and on Huntington’s chorea early in 1911. In 1907 appeared the monumental work on Alzheimer’s Disease for which he will always be remembered.
