Alzheimer’s Disease Early Warning Sign

Posted October 26, 2021 0

Memory Loss That Disrupts Daily Life

You’ve forgotten someone’s name, but then remember it later…

Is that an early sign of Alzheimer’s disease, or simply an age-related event?

Forgetting something and then remembering it later is generally age related, but…

…forgetting recently learned information can be an early sign of Alzheimer’s disease.

Other warning signs of Alzheimer’s could include:

  1. Forgetting important dates and events
  2. Asking the same questions over and over
  3. Increasing need to rely on memory aids
  4. Relying on family members for things they used to handle on their own

If any of these early signs are experienced, it’s important to seek a medical diagnosis early.

Early diagnosis has demonstrated better health outcomes for individuals and their caregivers.

Tore’s Home has been working with memory care patients residents for nearly over 25 years.  We’re here if you need us.

Tore’s Home offers small, intimate, secure home environments with only 6 to 12 individuals per home.

Keeping our homes small allows our caregivers to provide more personalized and customized care.

Additionally, small, quiet, “family-like” homes have proven beneficial to people with Alzheimer’s.
