    Alzheimer's disease 10 Warning Signs

    Dementia is a term used to describe a set of symptoms or behaviours that may include memory loss, difficulty with problem-solving and changes in mood and behaviour. Dementia is identified when these symptoms are severe enough to interfere with a person’s daily life and activities. Alzheimer’s disease is one type of dementia in which a progressive deterioration of brain cell function causes symptoms that affect one’s daily life. However, since these symptoms may also be due to other conditions such as depression, drug interactions or an infection, it is important to see a doctor in order to get the correct diagnosis and proper treatment. If dementia is suspected, your local Alzheimer Society can connect you to information, support and education.
