Alzheimer’s is a tragic and heartbreaking disease which can take the memory of your loved one in as little as a few years. Although it affects each individual differently, there are many common warning signs. If your loved one, or yourself, are showing any of the following warning signs, it’s recommend you seek out the appropriate medical attention with your current health care provider to learn home. However, home health care may be your best bet to make sure your loved one, or yourself, stay healthy throughout the years of dealing with the disease.
Below, you’ll read first 2 out of 10 warning signs of Alzheimer’s according to the Alzheimer’s Association:
1. Memory Loss
Memory loss is one of the most common signs of Alzheimer’s disease. Memory loss includes forgetting recently learned information to forgetting upcoming events, dates or tasks. Additionally, asking the same information over and over, relying on memory aids (electronic reminders, reminder notes) or family members for assistance on tasks they used to handle by themselves.
2. Challenged When Solving Problems or Planning
If an individual is experiencing early onset Alzheimer’s disease, developing or following a plan may become more difficult than in previous experiences. They may also have difficulty working with numbers. This may include keeping track of monthly bills or remembering a regularly used recipe. Because of memory loss, concentrating and completing simple tasks may take much longer than they once did.
