10 Early Signs and Symptoms of Alzheimer’s

One symptom that you may have noticed in someone with Alzheimer’s disease is that they’ll have trouble completing familiar tasks. This can even take the form of not being able to remember the directions to a frequently visited place. Even if it’s a trip to the same place to get coffee, someone with Alzheimer’s might get lost. As someone with Alzheimer’s, you can reduce the risk of this happening by always carrying a map, instructions to a location, or a phone that can provide you with directions. To make sure the address isn’t forgotten, make a plan to have a list of all the places you go to normally with the address, phone number, and what you get there. That way you can plan your route ahead of time and write down what you want there somewhere that you’ll check when you order. That way you’ll be able to know how to get there and what to do when you arrive.
