Sažetak
Although the disease was named one hundred years ago, it exists from the ancient times. First ones to describe it were old Grecian and Roman writers, later Shakespeare and other medieval authors. The disease term was varying throughout the different cultures and times. Its name, the disease owes to Alois Alzheimer, German scientist, who described it in 1906 on the 51 year-old patient Augusta D. Despite the enormous effort and great amount of data, one hundred years after the description, we still don't understand the exact cause and changes within the disease. Therefore Alzheimer's disease accurately holds the epithet "enigma of all enigmas". In 1984, Alzheimer Disease International (ADI) was founded as a head world's organization for Alzheimer's disease. Croatian association for Alzheimer's disease was founded in 1999 and became a member of ADI in 2005. From 1994 ADI, with the support of World health organization (WHO), annotates World Alzheimer's Day. World Alzheimer's Day™ , 21 September each year, is a day on which Alzheimer associations concentrate their efforts on raising awareness about dementia. There are an estimated 24 million people around the world who currently have dementia including more than 50 000 in Croatia. Getting people to campaign collectively on a unifying theme in their country is the most effective way of bringing dementia to the global attention of governments, opinion leaders, medical professionals, people with dementia and their care-givers. The importance of education is also outlined, not only for experts, but patients and their families. As this year's ADI motto says there is no time to lose!
