(HealthDay News) -- Alzheimer's disease, although typically associated with people 65 and older, also can affect younger people.

The Alzheimer's Association offers these suggestions for people who must cope with early-onset Alzheimer's:

  • Understand that there will be some good days and some bad days.
  • Talking to others about your situation will help you cope and may educate others.
  • Consider speaking to a professional counselor or a spiritual adviser.
  • Be open with loved ones. If possible, engage their help in handling everyday tasks and planning for the future.
  • Stay active by volunteering in your community.
  • Seek legal and financial advice, and talk to your employer about making any necessary adjustments at work.
  • Stay healthy, control stress and make sure your home is a safe place.
  • Stay physically active and maintain your regular activities for as long as possible. Don't stop living your life.
