With dementia rising at an alarming rate, it is more important now than ever to be aware of all the signs of early onset dementia.
As we age, things tend to slow down and one of these things can be your mind. There are some signs that are common with aging, but other signs could mean that you are experiencing early onset dementia. It is always a good idea to get a consultation with a neuropsychologist if you have any concerns about dementia.
Signs you shouldn’t ignore
• Forgetting newly learned information
• Forgetting directions to commonly visited places
• Misplacing things in odd locations
• Trouble performing familiar tasks
• Change in mood or personality
• Depression and isolation
• Withdrawal from hobbies and activities
• Hoarding or other compulsive actions
• Agitation and aggression
Dementia progresses at different rates in people. If you or a loved one is experiencing any of these symptoms, you should schedule a neuropsycology test with Dr. John DenBoer at SMART Brain Aging. The sooner you find out the better so that you can set a plan!
