5 Symptoms of Early Onset Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer’s disease causes memory loss and extreme behavioral changes, and it comes with old age. It cannot be cured, but there are ways to slow down the progression of the disease. Before you can do this, however, you need to know when the condition is creeping up on you. Below are 5 symptoms of early onset Alzheimer’s:

  1. Disruptive memory loss
    The most common symptom of Alzheimer’s is memory loss. The patient starts to struggle with remembering the names of those closest to them and they forget about plans and appointments. They ask questions repeatedly because they have no memory of having asked them.
  2. Difficulty in solving problems and completing simple tasks
  3. Simple calculations will become problematic, and patients often find it difficult to complete tasks they did with ease before e.g., driving to work or operating a TV remote.

  4. Constant confusion
    Alzheimer’s patients often find themselves forgetting what time of the day or what day of the week it is. After some minutes, they remember, only to forget again.
  5. Reduced interest in socializing
    The things that interested them in the past stop being interesting. They shy away from their hobbies, social gatherings, and forget about the sports team that they support.
  6. Constant mood changes
    Because of the changes they notice, Alzheimer’s patients often have terrible tempers; even if they never displayed such tendencies before. They become very irritable and when away from their comfort zones, they get upset quickly.

Alzheimer’s is a terrible disease that has the ability to change a person within a few months. If you notice any of the symptoms above in your loved one, please contact us at PCP for Life.
