Early detection of Alzheimer’s disease can mean a world of difference. Diagnosis of the disease in its early stages can give you the opportunity to seek treatment and plan ahead. Although Alzheimer’s disease does not currently have a cure, some treatments and lifestyle changes may be able to help slow the process. You will also be able to decide how you will handle the future, such as contacting a Maine Home Care agency (like MAS Home Care of Maine) that specializes in Alzheimer’s care.
Does memory loss disrupt your daily life?
Forgetting names, appointments or where we put something is a typical occurrence as we age. Usually we remember them later on. Alzheimer’s disease may be present if the forgetfulness involves newly learned information or important dates and events. If you find yourself repeating the same questions or needing to write everything down it could be more than just normal aging. Read the list of warning signs below if you suspect that you or a loved one may have Alzheimer’s disease.
If you answered yes to many of these questions, it is time to consult with a doctor. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions – we are a great resource center!
