Each person is unique and may experience symptoms differently, but common warning signs and symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease can include:
Changes in short-term memory that disrupt routine activities or job skills; forgetting important dates or events; repeatedly asking the same questions; relying on memory aids or other people to remember things.
Having problems with routine tasks at home, work or during recreational activities; examples could include difficulty with cooking, driving, using a cell phone or shopping.
Having trouble working through processes they have done consistently, for a long time; examples could include paying bills or cooking recipes they have used for years.
Having trouble following or joining a conversation, or struggling to find the right word when trying to name a familiar object.
Losing track of dates, seasons and the passage of time; forgetting where they are located at a given time, or how they got there.
Not wanting to participate in normal work, family or social activities; examples could include avoiding going to church, not being able to follow football games, movies or keep up with what is happening.
Becoming increasingly agitated, restless, anxious, fearful or suspicious in normal situations.
Losing track of things like car keys; accidentally placing items in odd places and not being able to retrace steps to remember where they left the items; sometimes people accuse others of stealing the misplaced items.
Demonstrating decreased reasoning abilities; examples could include mismanaging finances, becoming the victim of a scam, neglecting personal care and cleanliness, or having trouble caring for a pet.
Struggling to maintain balance or judge physical distances, including difficulty reading, tripping, dropping or spilling things.
Alzheimer’s disease is not a normal part of aging. When memory loss or difficulty performing routine tasks begins to disrupt daily life, it is time to see a physician.
