While there’s no cure, there are ways to potentially lessen the effects, according to the staff at West Vue in West Plains, MO. The earlier warning signs are identified, the sooner treatment can begin. This is invaluable when establishing a senior care management plan, so read on to learn more about early onset symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease.

3 Early Symptoms of Alzheimer’s Disease

1. Complications From Memory Loss

Difficulty remembering is the most common symptom of Alzheimer’s, but it isn’t always easy to notice. It’s common to forget things from time to time. With Alzheimer’s, however, the things your loved one forgets will noticeably begin to affect their day-to-day life. This may include missing important appointments or events or having difficulty remembering recently learned information. Look for patterns, and doesn’t hesitate to contact a senior care specialist at the slightest concern.

2. Difficulty With Times & Dates

senior care Time can be difficult to grasp for people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. Early on, they may have trouble remembering what day or month it is. This is most notable if they ask several times throughout the day or it becomes a regular issue. In later development, this can evolve into difficulty understanding where they are, which is why it’s important to gain control of the situation in its early stages.

3. Moodiness & Withdrawal

Alzheimer’s can drastically affect mood without warning. Depression and withdrawal are two of the most common symptoms, and they are often unexplained. Speak with your loved one about their mental health if you notice they’re acting strangely. They may also begin to feel uncomfortable in familiar situations and exhibit anxiety.
