Mid-stage:Moderate Mental abilities decline, the personality changes, and physical problems develop so that the person becomes more and more dependent on caregivers. Late-stage:Severe to complete deterioration of the personality and loss of control over bodily functions requires total dependence on others for even the most basic activities of daily living.The end result of Alzheimers is death, whether caused by the inability of the brain to keep the body going, or by another disease or injury along the way.How long it takes: People vary in the length of time spent in each stage and in which symptoms appear. However, the progression is always toward a worsening of symptoms that reflect more and more brain decay and increasing dependence on caregivers.
