Signs a Senior May Have Alzheimer’s Disease

If you are concerned that your loved one may have Alzheimer’s, consider:

  • Do they forget names, identities, or recent life events?
  • Do they frequently misplace items around the house or lose track of tasks and projects?
  • Are they having trouble reading and remembering what they have read?
  • Do they have new or worsening confusion with keeping track of the date, season, or year?
  • Have you noticed personality changes, such as anxiety, fearfulness, or lack of interest in hobbies?
  • Is memory loss disruptive to their daily life?

If you are noticing these warning signals, alert your loved one’s doctor and discuss your concerns. Receiving a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s and talking with your medical provider can help you understand your loved one’s symptoms and what they might face in the future.
