Signs Of Dementia

If you notice someone close to you that is acting on the offensive all the time, is irritated or disoriented then you should have them go to a doctor. These are some key signs of dementia.

The condition affects a part of your brain, mainly your memory. For the most part a person with the condition doesnít even notice what is happening to them.

If you notice someone with signs of dementia, you should try and get them to see a medical professional who can do tests and accurately diagnose the patient. Even if they are reluctant, try your best to convince them and get them to see a doctor. It would be better to be on the safe side than sorry.

If someone has dementia they will have a hard time with remembering tasks, names, places, dates and details. And usually these signs are ignored and just thought to be signs of getting older. But it can be the first signs of dementia. You should be aware of their ability to remember especially when they just forget something in an instant.

Dementia affects short term memory, allowing them to remember things that happened in the past, but forget things that just happened. Look out for those moments, when they just forget something in an instant.

The next step would be to see changes in the individualís behavior. They might be getting angry and frustrated easily with the simplest tings. And the individual might experience poor judgment, because of their memory loss. For example they can leave a child without supervision, because they forgot about them.

Also, it shouldnít only be you who keeps an eye on the individual; it helps if everyone in the family can be aware of the symptoms and be on the look out. You should do all you can to help your loved one. Donít just sit back and watch.
