The Alzheimer’s Association states that once the symptoms of Alzheimer’s have become noticeable, the average person will only live for 8 years depending on their current health status and age. Early detection with Alzheimer’s is key to prolonging your loved one’s life. Here is a list of early signs to look for in your loved one:

  • Getting lost in familiar places
  • Changes in personality or sudden depression
  • Socially inappropriate behavior
  • Memory loss that disrupts daily life
  • Difficulty completing familiar tasks
  • Confusion with time or place
  • Trouble understanding visual images
  • New problems with words in speaking or writing
  • Misplacing things and losing the ability to retrace steps
  • Decreased or poor judgment
  • Withdrawal from work or social activities
  • Staring off into space
  • Forgetting names or important things
  • Difficulty finding your words during a conversation
