We know how important proper dementia care is for your loved one because we offer it every day in the Gainesville, GA area. Symptoms of dementia are not unique to any one condition, but rather a spectrum of disorders that share many of the same characteristics. Dementia can be induced by an injury to the brain or by a degenerative brain disease. One of the most common symptoms of dementia is a progressive loss of mental capacity, usually brought on by aging. However, there are additional symptoms or warning signs that someone may be developing dementia besides memory loss. Dementia's most visible symptoms include:
- Inability to see and perceive with clarity
- Barriers in verbal and written communication
- Lack of ability to concentrate
- A tendency to lose things more frequently

How can Alzheimer's care help seniors manage their symptoms?
It is the most prevalent form of dementia—a set of conditions marked by memory loss—and Alzheimer's is the most frequent. Alzheimer's disease accounts for more than half of all cases of dementia. Memory loss is a normal aspect of aging, but Alzheimer's disease is not and gets worse over time. Besides memory loss, Alzheimer's affects a variety of cognitive problems. Other symptoms to look out for include:
- Short-term memory loss
- Suspicion or paranoia about other people (including family)
- Difficulty with communication or speaking
- Behavioral or mood changes
