1.2.2 Genetics

  • Genetics – Genetic factors are known to contribute to the onset of dementia, but the precise consequences vary greatly. Each child has a 50% chance of acquiring Alzheimer’s disease from a parent who carries a gene mutation of the disease. If the gene is present, the individual will eventually get Alzheimer’s disease; this typically occurs in their 40s or 50s.
