Symptoms of Alzheimer’s are different than the simple progression of some loss of memory most people experience as they grow older.

Alzheimer’s, either slowly or quickly, negatively affects a person’s communication, ability to make decisions, think through problems and to learn new basics tasks. This reduction in a person’s day to day living and functioning skills impacts their ability to work, social and to interact with their family.   

There is no fixed set of rules for normal memory loss due to aging and for memory loss due to Alzheimer’s. The best thing to do to make sure is to see the person’s doctor and complete and assessment of the person’s issues to see if it’s dementia or aging memory loss.  Listed here are the Alzheimer’s Association’s checklist of symptoms that are helpful and successful at helping people see their loved one’s regular ageing changes in memory and the more serious signals that a person may have Alzheimer’s.
