Should I Be Concerned?

Isn’t dementia a “normal” part of aging?

As people age, it's normal to have occasional memory problems, such as forgetting the name of a person you've recently met. However, memory loss can also be a symptom of illness or diseases like Alzheimer’s, Lewy body, Vascular Dementia or Parkinson’s, to name a few. If you notice unusual lapses in your loved one’s memory or if their behavior seems abnormal, you should consult a physician.

What signs should I be aware of if i think my loved one may have memory loss?

If you notice that a loved one is having memory loss, especially forgetting recently learned information, failing to recall important dates or having a hard time recognizing familiar people or things then it is time to consult a doctor. Behavioral changes may have an underlying medical reason perhaps the person is in pain or experiencing an adverse side effect from medications. In either case, it is important to get a professional medical opinion.

What can I expect from the disease process?

Every person experiences a different combination of symptoms throughout the disease process. Your doctor can give you the best information on what happens and what to expect as a disease progresses. It is important to find caregivers that understand the disease, but more importantly that they understand the whole person including the family and can provide personalized care for your loved one and peace of mind for you.
