Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia, and accounts for 60%-80% of dementia cases. As we get older, some of these signs may seem as a natural part of the aging process, but the more severe they are, the more likely it goes beyond the typical.Here are the most common early signs of this disease:
Memory loss that effects daily life: Forgetting things and remembering them later may be a sign of normal aging. Often forgetting names and dates, asking for information repeatedly and relying heavily on reminder notes or electronic devices/calendars may be signs of early Alzheimer’s.
Difficulty in solving problems or planning: This can include troubles following instructions or difficulty with numbers, including recipes or budgets.
Challenges in completing daily tasks: This might be losing familiarity with commonly visited places, forgetting important information, etc.
Confusion with time or place: Losing track of dates, months, seasons, timelines.
Trouble understanding images or judging distance: Difficulty reading, judging distance and differentiating colour contrast, which can lead to problems driving.
New problems with speech or writing: Struggling in social conversations, repeating what they are saying, losing train of thought entirely.
Losing items or the ability to retrace steps: Misplacing items or putting them in unusual spots, and accusing them of being stolen.
Poor judgement or decision making: Decisions like struggling with money and giving a large amount of money to a scam, telemarketer etc.
Withdrawal from work or hobbies: Being unable to remember sports, social activities or falling behind on hobbies because they don’t remember how to complete them.
Changes in mood or personality: People suffering from Alzheimer’s can become confused, fearful, depressed, anxious, on-edge and can be easily irritable.
