EARLY SYMPTOMS OF DEMENTIA

Elderly Person

Dementia is a group of symptoms that affect someone’s ability to function as they used to. There are many symptoms that may indicate someone suffers from dementia. Here are a few.

Memory loss

The average human experiences a certain extent of memory loss as they grow older. However, dementia may be a concern for someone who is suffering from more extreme memory loss, such as forgetting how to do something they once did on a daily basis.

Motor coordination

Another common symptom of dementia includes difficulties with motor coordination. This can include basic everyday activities like getting out of bed, reaching for a glass of water, and walking from one destination to the next.

While these can be symptoms of dementia, they do not directly indicate that someone may have dementia. There are many other factors to consider when diagnosing someone with dementia and talking with a doctor is a great first place to begin this discussion.
