10 Alzheimer’s Warning Signs.

Applying the word “Alzheimer’s” to someone close to you can be uncomfortable, even if the signs, or symptoms, have been adding up for some time. It’s much easier to gloss over strange behaviour: “Oh, Mum’s is just getting older. Or to rationalise: “Well, we all forget things sometimes.”

Only a qualified GP can conclude with high certainty that a person has Alzheimer’s disease. The following are 10 warning signs you should look out for. If your loved one is experiencing difficulty in any of the below areas and you are concerned, please contact a healthcare professional immediately.

Warning Signs:

-Memory loss that disrupts daily life

-Challenges in planning or solving problems
-Difficulty in completing familiar tasks at home, at work or at leisure
-Confusion with time or place
-Trouble understanding visual images and spatial relationships
-Comprehension – New problems with words in speaking or writing
-Misplacing things and losing the ability to retrace steps.

-Decreased or poor judgement
-Withdrawal from work or social interaction
-Changes in mood and personality.
