Senior Care Alzheimer's Awareness Month November 17, 2016

Lincoln, Lancaster
Senior Care Alzheimer's Awareness Month, Lincoln, Nebraska

November is Alzheimer’s awareness month. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, Alzheimer’s is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States with nearly 5 million Americans affected from the disorder. Unfortunately, Alzheimer’s cannot be cured. While some symptoms of Alzheimer’s are normal with the aging process, early detection allows those affected by the disease to take full advantage of treatment options.

Some of the warning signs for the onset of Alzheimer’s are:

  • Memory loss
  • Issues with planning or problem solving
  • Issues completing familiar tasks
  • Being confused about time or place
  • Problems with vision (reading, judging distances, color)
  • Losing things
  • Poor judgment
  • Withdrawing from hobbies, family, social activities
  • Changes in mood and personality

If you or someone you love is experiencing any of these symptoms, talk to your doctor about an Alzheimer’s screening today.
