Know the 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer's Disease

Know the 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer's Disease

Rich and I have been volunteering for the Alzheimer's Assocation for 15+ years. We do our best each year to raise awareness and monies to fight this terrible disease that effects more than 60,000 Coloradans and their families.

Through a series of "Did You Know" blog posts, we hope to educate the public and motivate others to do what they can to support the cause to fight Alzheimer's. 

 

Remember that early detection matters, so be aware of the warning signs:

1. Memory loss that disrupts daily life

2. Challenges in planning or solving problems

3. Difficulty completing familiar tasks

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 judgement

9. Withdrawl from work or social activities

10. Changes in mood and personality

 

For more information and detail regarding these warning signs, please visit the Alzheimer's Association website. Then click on the link for the 10 warning signs which will open a .PDF document.

David~ We need to be aware of people around us too. We might notice something that could be significant.

This is getting more and more prevalent daily and we really need to be more aware of the signs.

Kevin~ In the last month, 2 people that I know have been diagnosed. My family has a history, that's what got me involved.
