Five Warning Signs For Dementia and Alzheimer’s

As adult children migrate home for the Holidays, their senior parents sometimes show a few early warning signs that Dementia or Alzheimer's may be starting. In this podcast, I will elaborate on these five signs and what to do. If you see any of these signs, it is worth consulting a medical professional, and it is probably time to think about rearranging assets and income in light of future long term care costs.

Here are five specific warning signs:

* Overstocking or understocking at home

* Mail and bills accumulated in piles

* Fuzzy short-term memory but clarity about the past

* Odd misplacement of regular household items

* Routine tasks become confusing and frustrating

If a loved one is showing these signs, the worst thing a family can do is “wait and see” without seeking the help of a medical professional. While we always want to hope for the best for a loved one, having the facts can help the family protect itself more effectively.
