Alzheimer's Warning Signs

If you think you or a loved one may have Alzheimer's early detection is at the forefront. The Alzheimer's Association has developed a worksheet listing the 10 main warning signs of Alzheimer's, which you can fill out and take to your doctor. You can access the paper on the Senior Resources page at my website.

The 10 early warning signs are:

1. Memory loss that disrupts daily life.
2. Challenges in planning or solving problems.
3. Difficulty completing familiar tasks at home, at work or at leisure.
4. Confusion with time or place. 5. Trouble understanding visual images and spatial relationships.
6. New problems with words in speaking or writing.
7. Misplacing things and losing the ability to retrace steps.
8. Decreased or poor judgment.
9. Withdrawal from work or social activities.
10. Changes in mood and personality.

The worksheet goes into more detail about each warning sign, which will help you determine if the warning sign is warranted.
