How to identify Alzheimer’s disease?
Why do things like these happen to good people who don’t deserve it? We don’t know exactly other than the fact other diseases cause this. We do know how to identify Alzheimer’s in a person, which is normally identified with severe memory problems. Early symptoms of this include short-term memory loss, repetitive conversations, and indecisiveness. Middle stage symptoms are slightly worse and include speech problems, increasing confusion, and memory problems, change in sleeping patterns, mood swings, hallucinations, feeling anxious and or aggressive. The later symptoms are severe and can lead to death (even though Alzheimer’s isn’t the direct cause of death) but this consists of poor mobility, difficulty eating which later leads to pneumonia, weight loss/gain, worsened memory problems(not recognizing your own family and friends, etc) and gradual loss of speech. You’ll have good days and bad days with your memory and won’t be able to do daily household things like cooking, cleaning and going on a walk. You won’t be able to continue hobbies such as knitting and sewing, but this would be fine at an early stage. At later stages you become indecisive and angry because you’re not too sure what is going on and results in not being able to go on a walk in case you get lost, not being able to talk to visitors when family and friends are there and not being yourself because you don’t really know what is happening to yourself.
