Language and Alzheimer's disease

I was wondering if anyone knows, or if there is any information about speakers of various languages who have the Alzheimer's disease. I mean, how the disease affects the possibility of communicating in non-native languages that one has learned later on in life. Is there any information or studies regarding this? It would be interesting to me to find out if Alzheimer patients are able to communicate in all the languages that they once knew fluently or if the communication is solely reduced to the language that one learned as a mother-tounge.

Thanks for any information or thoughts regarding this.
