Do you think someone you care about may be showing symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease? Then it’s important to know which symptoms most commonly appear in each of the stages of the disease: Mild symptoms. Alzheimer’s disease begins slowly and usually starts with forgetfulness. If you think the person you’re concerned about may be showing mild symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, see if you observe any of the following changes:

• Memory loss and changes in expressive speech

• Inability to learn new information

• Taking longer to finish routine daily tasks

• Mood and personality changes, such as depression or increased anxiety

• Difficulty with planning meals or taking medications on schedule

• Trouble with performing simple math problems, handling money, balancing a checkbook or paying bills

• Confusion about the location of familiar places

• Poor judgment leading to faulty decisions

Note: Even with some of these changes, the person may still be able to do most activities and drive a car. Always consult a doctor first.
