1. Memory loss.
We often think that memory loss is a part of aging, when it is not, it is rather a vital symptom of Alzheimer’s. Especially, forgetfulness caused by stress, anxiety, or depression is often mistaken as dementia, while it is not.
“We all forget the exact details of a conversation or what someone told us to do, but a person with AD will forget what just happened, what someone just said, or what he or she just said and therefore repeat things over and over again,” says Lisa P. Gwyther, co-author of The Alzheimer’s Action Plan: A Family Guide.
Gwyther says, “Nothing is certain or predictable with most dementia except they do progress.’
