Identifying the Early Signs/Symptoms of Alzheimer’s
Comfort Keepers is here to help with our Alzheimer's care plans
With millions affected by Alzheimer's around the world, it should come as no surprise how big the world of research and awareness currently is. When it comes to awareness about Alzheimer's, one the most important components are education, from what Alzheimer's is to what research is being done to find a cure. One aspect that has been receiving more attention recently is the importance of early detection. This is because of the emphasis on testing and research about how the brain starts to change years before severe symptoms occur in Alzheimer’s patients.
As a result of this research, organizations, like Comfort Keepers Home Care in Sacramento, are trying to increase the number of adults who are aware of their diagnosis. We understand how difficult the diagnosis of Alzheimer's can be, but early detection allows for the possibility of clinical trials. It also provides those affected and their family more time to plan for what is to come and have a proper care plan in place.
Early Signs/Symptoms of Alzheimer’s
We cannot emphasis the importance of early detection enough. Below are a few common early symptoms and signs of Alzheimer’s that senior clients and family caregivers can be on the lookout for.
