					                                    3 Alzheimer's Warning Signs

According to the Alzheimer's Association, there are a variety of warning signs and symptoms that may
indicate the onset of Alzheimer's disease. If you notice any of these symptoms, you should contact a
doctor right away. Though many of these symptoms mimic age-related problems that almost all elderly
people experience, Alzheimer's disease symptoms are typically more significant than the common
ailments associated with growing older.

Symptom 1: Inability to solve common problems.
The ability to follow a common plan or use basic mathematical calculations often decreases with the
onset of Alzheimer's disease. While making the occasional mathematical error while balancing a
checkbook is common for anyone as they get older, Alzheimer's sufferers typically have greater
difficulty maintaining concentration and often take a much longer time to do routine tasks that they
used to perform easily.

Symptom 2: Memory problems.
Someone with Alzheimer's disease may forget important dates, the rules of the favorite game, or ask for
the same information from someone repeatedly. This is different than simply forgetting, on occasion,
what day it is or not remembering a birthday. A person with Alzheimer's experiences memory lapses
that disrupt their daily routine.

Symptom 3: Sudden mood changes.
Elderly people tend to adopt patterns and feel uncomfortable once those patterns are disrupted. A
person with Alzheimer's may experience a significant mood change whenever a pattern is disrupted.
They may express fear, education, suspicion, or extreme confusion when they experience something
that they do not find comfortable or familiar.
