Good for you! I'm sorry for your losses. I lost both of my paternal grandparents to it.

That's sad. I don't think they literally die from Alzheimer's, do they? Isn't it a complication?

They do.See alzheimers affects their bodies in so many ways.It starts to shut down the brain there for their minds dont know to work.They dont remember to chew and can choke very easily,their hearts start to slow down,their bodies basically start shutting down.
