Understanding Dementia & Alzheimer's Disease

Dementia is a broad term for the decline of memory, thinking, or reasoning. While there are many forms of dementia, Alzheimer’s disease is the most common and accounts for 60-80% of all cases. It is important to know that, although the risks of contracting Alzheimer’s disease increase with age, it is not a normal part of aging. 

Early warning signs and symptoms of Alzheimer’s and other dementias include the following:

  • Memory loss that disrupts daily life

  • Challenges in planning or solving problems

  • Difficulty completing familiar tasks

  • Confusion with time or place

  • Trouble understanding visual images and spatial relationships

  • New issues with speaking or writing

  • Misplacing important items

  • Losing the ability to retrace steps

  • Withdrawal from work or social activities

  • Changes in mood or personality

If you notice any of these signs or symptoms, it is important to consult with a doctor or memory care provider right away.
