10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s Disease

Do you know the 10 warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease? According to the Alzheimer’s Association, memory loss that disrupts daily life is not a typical part of aging. It may be a sign of Alzheimer’s, a fatal brain disease that causes a slow decline in memory thinking and reasoning skills.

Individuals may experience one or more of the warning signs in varying degrees. These signs are:

1. Memory loss that disrupts daily life.

2. Challenges in planning or solving problems.

3. Difficulty completing familiar tasks at home, at work or at leisure.

4. Confusion with time or place.

5. Trouble understanding visual images and spatial relationships.

6. New problems with words in speaking or writing.

7. Misplacing things and losing the ability to retrace steps.

8. Decreased or poor judgment.

9. Withdrawal from work or social activities.

10. Changes in mood and personality.

Persons exhibiting any of the signs are encouraged to see a doctor. If you have a loved one that has already been diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, and are in need of extra help, look no further than Home Instead Senior Care.
