Recognizing The Early Signs Of Alzheimer’s
As we grow older, we have all noticed that our memory changes. Lapses in memory are not uncommon, but how to do we know when the normal memory troubles that come with aging cross over into Alzheimer’s disease territory? So that your team of elder care professionals can keep an eye out for Alzheimer’s warning signs, here is a look at the early indicators of this disease.
- Difficulty With Tasks: If you notice someone having trouble completing a task that he or she regularly performs (e.g. cooking a meal, playing a game), note it as it could be one of Alzheimer’s signs.
- Memory Loss: Of course, memory loss comes with the territory with dementia. While we all forget names or why we walked into a room, memory loss that exhibits as forgetting the same information over and over—especially information that person previously knew—is more serious.
- Withdrawal: The signs of Alzheimer’s will often be as scary to your resident as they are to his or her family. This can lead to a withdrawal from social situations.
- Location Confusion: Did you notice that your resident had a difficult time navigating back to your facility? Did he or she get lost in the store? This kind of difficulty with place can be a sign of Alzheimer’s disease.
