Alzheimer's Has Four Separate Stages:

  1. This stage is pre-clinical, meaning your loved one has not received a diagnosis from their doctor or noticed symptoms yet
  2. Your loved one begins to display mild symptoms like forgetfulness, losing items more frequently, and confusion over locations or dates. As you notice these symptoms, contact your loved one’s doctor as soon as possible. This mild stage of Alzheimer’s can last for about two years.
  3. Their symptoms increase to the moderate stage of Alzheimer's. Your loved one will begin to need assistance with daily tasks and struggle to live independently at home. They can experience increased anxiety, loneliness, and irritability.
  4. The final stage is when symptoms become severe. Their memory loss is apparent, they are unable to speak or form sentences, and they struggle to express themselves. During this stage, your loved one will need home care solutions for their daily needs.

What to Do When There's an Alzheimer's Diagnosis
