  • Difficulty completing familiar tasks: whether it is at home or work, there will be noticeable difficulties completing tasks that are familiar.
  • Withdrawal from social or work activities.
  • Poor decision-making skills and judgment calls: there may be less attention to grooming and hygiene, as well as issues with monetary scams or mishandling of finances.
  • Memory loss: if there is memory loss that disrupts daily life, such as not remembering names of people or places, problems remembering where things go and issues to committing new information to mind, it's a red flag.
  • Mood or personality changes: signs may include depression, anxiety, mood swings, disinterest in favorite activities or hobbies, withdrawal from social life, as well as suspicion.
  • Losing the ability to retrace steps and misplacing things: individuals displaying signs of Alzheimer's may accuse people of stealing as they start to misplace their belongings.
  • Confusion about time and place: the general passage of time, be it dates or seasons, is something that people with Alzheimer's struggle with every day.
  • Word problems with speaking or writing: trouble following conversations or directions, as well as completing sentences and finding the right words, are signs of Alzheimer's.
  • Spatial relationships and visual images cause concerns: look for difficulty judging distances, reading, and determining contrast and color.
  • Challenges with planning or problem solving: familiar tasks like paying monthly bills or following a simple recipe, things that were easy to accomplish before, will become a challenge due to difficulty concentrating.
