Signs of Memory Loss

Typical age-related changes

Poor judgment and decision making

Making a bad decision once in a while

Inability to manage a budget

Missing a monthly payment

Losing track of the date or the season

Forgetting which day it is and remembering later

Difficulty having a conversation

Sometimes forgetting which word to use

Misplacing things and being unable to retrace steps to find them

Losing things from time to time

 


What to do if you notice these signs

If you notice any of these warning signs in yourself or someone you know, don't ignore them. Schedule an appointment with your doctor.

The earlier you plan, the more involvement you have in your own care. Alzheimer’s is a very cruel disease, and very difficult for families to come to terms with.  Some families are in denial and they wait too long, until their loved one is past the point of being able to participate in choosing where they want to live.
