In brief: Absolutely

Alzheimer disease can only be definitively diagnosed by a neuropathologist at the time of autopsy.
Pathologically, there are six stages of alzheimer disease. Most older adults have early pathologic changes of alzheimer disease (stages i or ii), but they remain intellectually intact.
