What are early signs of Alzheimer's disease?

  1. Some signs of Alzheimer's disease are easier to identify than others. Here are some common early signs to pay attention to: confusion, difficulty with tasks, memory loss, misplacing items, mood changes, planning and problem solving issues, poor decision making, social withdrawal, vision & spatial problems

    1. My husband is experiencing several of these.

      1. , has your husband been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease? If you have concerns, I would seek out a medical doctor who can look at your husband and accurately access what is going on with him. It is good to go with him and then you can give some feedback on the situation too. I hope that this is helpful to you. Please be in touch about your husband and what is going on. Thank you.

      2. Yes. He is seeing a neurologist and is on medication. He has difficulty with simple tasks and his short term memory is not good at all. I am having to be responsible for just about everything now. There are so many things...the bills, driving, shopping. I have tried to get him engaged in some simple projects. He used to make the most wonderful bird houses and now struggled to complete a simple box one. Frustration was the biggest thing. Problem solving is so difficult! Breaking my heart!
