Alzheimer’s Disease Early Warning Signs for Cumming / Gainesville Seniors

Cumming / Gainesville Seniors May Show Early Warning Signs for Alzheimer’s Disease or Dementia

Your memory often changes as you grow older. But memory loss that disrupts daily life is not a typical part of aging, and it may be a symptom of dementia. Dementia is a slow decline in memory, thinking and reasoning skills. The most common form of dementia is Alzheimer’s disease, which results in the loss of brain cells and function.

Some early warning signs of Alzheimer’s Disease:

  • Memory loss that disrupts daily life
  • Difficulty planning or solving problems
  • Forgetting how to do familiar tasks
  • Confusion with dates, time or place
  • Trouble with spatial relationships, including trouble reading words on a page, judging distances, or distinguishing colors
  • New problems with words while speaking or writing
  • Misplacing objects and the inability to retrace steps
  • Altered decision making, poor judgment, or relying on someone else to make decisions
  • Withdrawal from work or social situations, difficulty initiating activities, or lacking motivation
  • Mood swings and changes in personality, including depression, anxiousness, or paranoia
