Alzheimer’s disease causes memory loss and leads to decline in thinking skills. Nowadays, more than 5 million Americans are struggling with this illness. Although the cure for Alzheimer’s still hasn’t been found, there are some ways the worsening of dementia symptoms can be slowed down.
If you have noticed that your loved one is showing some common symptoms of Alzheimer’s, you should get them to their physician as soon as possible. In case they are diagnosed with this disease, you need to get an Alzheimer’s care team and come up with a care plan as soon as possible in order to improve your loved one’s quality of life.
Common Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s
The most common sign that a senior has Alzheimer’s is memory loss. If your parent is not remembering names, places, people, events, what day it is or how to engage in their favorite activities, you should visit a doctor. Also, seniors who are struggling with this disease often have trouble keeping track of monthly bills, cannot concentrate and take much longer to do things than before.
If your loved one has difficulty reading, judging distance, determining color or contrast, finding the appropriate words, completing sentences and is often misplacing things, you should consider having them evaluated by a physician and screened for Alzheimer’s. Seniors with this disease often have mood swings as well and not interested in engaging in usual activities.
Keep in mind that Alzheimer’s is not a normal part of aging and all of these symptoms will gradually increase and become more persistent.
