Go to alz.org to find the different stages. Each person is unique though and presents with varying degrees of the symptoms.

It doesnt much matter as they can stay at any stage for any length of time in my opinion. My Mom lives with me and I take care of her. She hasnt walked or talked for over 4 years and I have been using thick it and pureeing her foods that long also. With good care her doc said they go on for many years and die a natural death.

Good information from others. I would say tho that those steps are only a guideline. My husband lost his ability to speak, communicate or write shortly after diagnosis. From having a problem with some words, to nothing at all in about a year.
