11 Early-signs of Dementia

Dementia isn’t just a single disease. In fact, it’s much more complicated than that, as it describes a whole collection of symptoms. These symptoms might affect someone’s memory, but also their ability to think, process information, and communicate with other people.

As the World Health Organization has stated, more than 55 million people all over the world suffer from dementia, and over 10 million new cases are now diagnosed every year. Even if Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia, there are other causes too.

Even if dementia symptoms might vary due to underlying causes, there are still some key symptoms you need to watch out for.

    Ive been reading the Unbreakable Brain by Dr. Will Mitchell. He has studied the cognitive decline and how to protect it in these difficult times and aging issues. It is a wonderful proof that diet and exercise etc. can turn this decline around and people can augment significant changes in their deteriorating stages!

  2. Very informative. Both my Father & Father-in-law had this. This list is what I have experienced within the last 6-9 months.

  3. My Mom has dementia, one of her closest friends is also exhibiting signs of dementia, I have noticed that I’m also having signs myself, I often can’t find words to complete a statement or conversation, I sometimes leave one room to go do/get something but once I leave the room I forgot what I was going to do, I usually remember after a little while. This is very unsettling, thanks for the article. I am now concerned about what I can do to head this off. I think that your next topic for consideration is “how to head off dementia”.

  4. I just lost a sister inlaw to this awful disease. Maybe thats not the appropriate title; but she went down hill quite rapidly after the loss of her husband. She never fully understood that he was gone, and she went between her daughters care to her sons. It’s very sad what this can do to an individual. My prayers are with each and every one of you! Keep your head up and let’s fight for a cure for all these sad, sickening diseases. Together we’ll all make a difference!!

    God bless,
    Sherri
