Is It Alzheimer’s?

Is It Alzheimer’s or Just Signs of Aging?

Memory loss that disrupts daily life can be frustrating. It may also be a sign of Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia. Alzheimer’s is a brain disease that causes a slow decline in memory, thinking and reasoning skills.

Early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease gives you a chance to seek treatment and make plans for the future. Every individual may experience one or more of the following signs in different degrees. If you or someone you know is experiencing any of these signs, please see a doctor as soon as possible.
