Recognizing the Signs of Dementia or Alzheimer's Disease

When your loved one is first diagnosed with a memory-related disease like dementia or Alzheimer's, you may not notice much of a difference in their behavior. Plus, if you don’t live nearby and see them regularly, it can be hard to tell when the disease is progressing. But at Visiting Angels Gastonia, we know from experience that there are common signs indicating it may be time to bring in specialized in home dementia care services. Some of these include:

  • Progressive forgetfulness and periods of confusion with time or place
  • Accidents and injuries, including bruises, abrasions and burns
  • Inability to perform familiar daily tasks, like driving or preparing meals
  • A disheveled appearance and/or a lack of personal hygiene 
  • Significant weight loss, suggesting your loved one is forgetting to eat or not preparing healthy meals
