IDENTIFYING THE EARLY SIGNS

Identifying the early signs of someone that may develop the condition can be quite difficult, as he says the “actual changes in the brain that we know happen in Alzheimer’s disease, begin 20 years or so, before the individual becomes symptomatic.'' When conducting his diagnosis, and attempting to track back and identifying what the symptoms were, he believes “it is difficult because they are very subtle”.

Dr Warner suggests that the early signs people should look out for should be “increasing memory lapses”, and to check whether the person is “repeating questions”. Specifically with Alzheimer’s, he recommends to keep an eye out for “subtle, mild memory loss” and see if the person is experiencing difficulty in “abstract thinking and weighing things in the balance.”

From a psychological perspective, Dr Warner also mentions that it is important to be aware if the person may “have other problems, such as depression or psychosis”, which could also be early signs of dementia.
