How long do people live once they began developing symptoms of Alzheimer Disease?

Once a person develops symptoms of Alzheimer disease, they usually live 8 to 10 years. This varies from person to person. Some people who have Alzheimer disease will live more than ten years and others will live less than eight years. People with Alzheimer disease most often pass away from pneumonia and poor nutrition. Regular follow up with your neurologist and other healthcare specialists can ensure the person who has Alzheimer Disease is getting proper medical care and treatment. When AD becomes severe, a caregiver or living in an assisted living facility is helpful to ensure the person who has AD is being cared for appropriately.
