The gray -haired lady can”t wait to leave the building to search for her dad. Unless watched, she will walk in the streets in an effort to find her father, who died 30 years ago.
Not all cases of Alzheimer”s disease look like this, but Alzheimer”s is a serious disease that is said to be the fourth or fifth leading cause of death for people over age 75.
It is said that about three percent of the U.S. population over age 65 have Alzheimer”s. In the early stages, people may exhibit short term memory loss. Some may experience changes in personality, easy to be angry. Athe disease progresses, patients might lose the ability to move and may be unable to speak or move at all. This progressive disease generally lasts 8 to 10 years before death occurs.
While no one is certain what causes these changes in the brain”s nerve fibers （神经纤维）, their effect is certain. Alzheimer”s destroys not only the patients, but also spouses （配偶）, friends and families.
What should you do if you notice progressive memory loss in yourself or a loved one? Have the person examined by a doctor who is a specialist in the treatment of Alzheimer”s disease. Though many reasons other than Alzheimer”s disease may cause memory loss, its early diagnosis （诊断）and treatment may delay some of the most serious effects.
What feeling will you likely experience should a loved one suffer from Alzheimer”s disease? A person will often go through the various stages of sadness, shock, anger, and so on. If the spouse develops the disease, you may experience hurt and disappointment when he or she doesn”t remember you are married.
Life for the Alzheimer”s patients and their loved ones will never be the same as the disease progresses, bringing a deep sorrow, loss and even anger towards God. No matter what feelings are present, facing them honestly will serve one better than burying them.

While in Bnff, make time for a walk around town. A special treat is to go up the mountainside on the Bnff Gondola for a surprising view of the valley below. Here is The Pines, whose cook has developed a special way of mixing foreign food such as caribou, wild boar, and reindeer with surprising sauces.
Bst time to visit is during the off-season, from early May to mid-June, or in October. This way you can avoid sharing the high way with mobile （移动的）homes which can be pulled by cars. Bt whatever the season, take some lunch with you from Bnff, because there are only a few food stops on the road.
Forty minutes north of Bnff, side by side with the Bnff National Park, sits world-famous Lake Louise. This surprisingly small body of water is attractive with towering mountains around it. Glaciers, huge masses of ice, moving very slowly against rocks, produce what is called glacier rock flour, making its water dark to see. It is worth taking a walk around the grounds of the Cateau Lake Louise, another beauty, proud of its early 20th century history.
Bck on the road, and it”s time to continue north past the astonishing Clumbia Icefield, then turn off the highway and take the short road to the base of the Athabaska Glacier. You can rent ice cleats （夹板）and do some climbing or do a more pleasant snowmobile tour. Either way, you can enjoy endless beautiful sights.
Finally you”ll reach Jasper, the usual turning around the place for the Bnff-Jasper loop （回路）. It”s worth riding the Jasper Skytram, and be sure to visit the wonderful Jasper Park Lodge, also dating back to the 1920s. If you can have lunch there, do it. The restaurant has an adventurous menu and their wine list would put a smile on any visitor”s face.
