Age is the most important risk factor for developing Alzheimer’s dementia. 44% of individuals between 75-84 years of age have AD.
People with Alzheimer’s may be easily influenced by others and may trust strangers. They may not dress appropriately for the weather, or for the social situation (ex. Bathrobe to the store).
Patients with the early signs of Alzheimer’s may have a hard time communicating and finding the “right” word. Their writing skills may also be affected, resulting in poor penmanship.
An early sign of Alzheimer’s may manifest as spending excessive amounts of money inappropriately, and patients may not be able to manage a monthly budget.
Individuals can occasionally forget the day of the week or what time of year it is, appearing confused.
Many individuals can get frustrated because they temporarily misplace things like their keys, purses or wallets. Furthermore, these people may put objects in inappropriate places, but have no memory of how it arrived there.
