Hillside Terrace Discusses Crucial Dementia Symptoms to Watch for in Aging Parents

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Michimich -- It's scary when your aging parent is experiencing symptoms of Alzheimer's disease. The fact is, however, that in people aged 65 and over, the risk of developing dementia symptoms doubles every five years. Because you're so close to your parents, you are best equipped to spot troubling behavior patterns and become your parent's advocate. This includes recognizing that your parent may need assisted living.

If you're concerned that your parent may be experiencing dementia, watch for these eight symptoms:

1.     Difficulty remembering or coming up with words

2.     Losing Track of Time

3.     Problems Remembering Commitments

4.     Lack of Ability to Learn New Things

5.     Struggling with Finances

6.     Repeating Themselves

7.     Losing Interest in Favorite Activities

If you've noticed any of the above behaviors in your elderly parent, you may be confused about what to do. The good news is that there are numerous resources to help you get the proper diagnosis and care.
