Alzheimer’s Symptoms

As per data published only 16% of seniors get cognitive check-ups when they visit the doctor, it’s highly important to stay informed of the major signs and symptoms of Alzheimer’s:

  • Memory loss – Everyone has occasional memory lapses, however, the memory loss associated with Alzheimer’s disease worsens, affecting the ability to function at work or home.
  • Thinking and reasoning – Alzheimer’s disease causes difficulty concentrating, especially about abstract concepts such as dealing with numbers.
  • Judgment calls – Alzheimer’s causes a decline in the ability to make reasonable judgments in everyday routine or daily situations.
  • Performing familiar tasks – Eventually, people with advanced Alzheimer’s often forget how to perform basic tasks that include such as dressing, bathing, or eating.
  • Personality changes – Brain changes that occur in Alzheimer’s disease can affect mood and behavior.

Although these symptoms don’t necessarily confirm that an individual has Alzheimer’s Disease or dementia, it’s important to reassess your loved one’s behavior and evaluate whether anything has recently changed. Have these changes been building up for a long time?
