Early Signs & Symptoms of Alzheimer’s Disease
Are you noticing some changes in your loved one’s cognitive abilities? Are there some routine tasks that he/she is no longer able to perform? If so, it may be time to take a closer look at things like medications, bank statements, unpaid bills, food supply, etc. If you find cause for concern, go ahead and make an appointment with your loved one’s primary care physician. A geriatrician is a great resource when you suspect memory problems.
The Alzheimer’s Association (www.alz.org) provides a wealth of information about all forms of dementia as well as local resources, like support groups, that you may find very helpful. The following link will take you to the association’s explanation of the 10 Early Signs and Symptoms of Alzheimer’s.
