Spotting the Early Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s
In the U.S., 5.3 million people have Alzheimer’s disease. In fact, to help combat this condition, the state of Texas has even formed an Alzheimer’s Disease Partnership. This form of dementia can start slowly and the sooner you seek help for your senior family member the better the outlook will be. Look for the following early warning signs of Alzheimer’s:
Most people, no matter their age, have certain routines that they follow; be it a bedtime routine, a morning routine, or even routines for getting ready to leave the house. If you or your senior’s Always Best Care provider start to notice that a senior is not following their normal routine or seems to have forgotten it, it may be time to consider an evaluation.
Problems with Short-Term Memory
While nearly all seniors will experience a small amount of memory loss, significant increased short-term memory loss and repeating questions can be concerning. They may be able to remember the name of their childhood best friend, but forget yesterday’s trip to the Woodland’s Mall. If you observe that your senior’s short-term memory seems to be declining, contact a doctor.
Using Poor Judgment
If you suddenly notice that your senior family member is making bad choices, such as giving large sums of money to suspicious solicitors, it could be an early symptom of Alzheimer’s that warrants further investigation. A caregiver from Always Best Care can help you be on the lookout for this sign.
