10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s
- Memory Loss: One of the most common early signs of dementia is forgetting recently learned information. While it is normal to forget common everyday things once in a while, those with dementia will forget things more often and not remember them later.
- Difficulty performing familiar tasks: People with dementia find it hard to complete tasks that were once familiar to them. They may not know how to prepare a meal, use a household appliance, make a phone call, etc.
- Problems with language: Everyone has trouble finding the right word sometimes, but a persona with dementia often forgets simple words or substitutes with unusual words. Writing and language skills become more difficult and the individual may become annoyed that you don’t understand what they are trying to communicate.

- Problems with abstract thinking: Everyday activities such as writing or balancing the checkbook become difficult. They may completely forget what the numbers are used for.
- Misplacing things: A person with dementia may put things in unusual places; an iron in the freezer, a sandwich under the sofa…hording and hiding are common behaviors.
- Changes in mood or behavior: Rapid mood swings become more frequent. The mood swings can go from calm to tears to anger within minutes for no apparent reason.
