You can say someone is suffering from Alzheimer's disease or Alzheimer's, both are acceptable and mean the same thing.

Yes. Alzhehimer and Alzhehimers disease is the same thing. However it is dependent upon the context.

So if I say Mr Barry has got Alzhehimers it means he has been diagnosed with the condition. Nevertheless, if I was to say Mr Barry has got Alzhehimers disease another individual perhaps a nurse /doctordoes not need me to expand as they would be knowledgeable enough to know what I am communicating about.

Hoped I helped out.

All the best! 😀

Alois Alzheimer is the doctor who first described the disease, so this form of dementia is named after him. I am assuming you mean something like "Is Parkinson's = Parkinson's Disease?" In unqualified terms yes.
