Symptoms of Alzheimer’s and Dementia
Some form of memory loss is common in aging seniors, so this isn’t necessarily a sign of Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. People in the early stages of these memory loss conditions will experience consistent memory issues, general confusion, and agitation. You must pay close attention to your loved one for early signs of Alzheimer’s and dementia.
Common symptoms of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease include:
- Forgetfulness: Short-term memory is affected first by Alzheimer’s and dementia, so the early symptoms are often mild. Your loved one may forget events and conversations from the previous day and their forgetfulness will happen more frequently. Their long-term memory will be affected over time and they may be unable to recognize friends or family members.
- Wandering: People with these conditions may experience general confusion that leads to aimless wandering. Your loved one may wander looking for things or friends that don’t exist. Wandering can be dangerous if dementia patients leave their home unsupervised.
- Agitation: Many people suffering from memory loss conditions become frustrated by their growing limitations. It is common for dementia and Alzheimer’s patients to experience mood swings and outbursts of agitation.
- Incontinence: Patients in late stages of Alzheimer’s and dementia may lose control of their body, which leads to incontinence.
