Alzheimer’s Disease – The 10 Warning Signs

Every 70 seconds someone is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. The Alzheimer’s Association has a list of the 10 warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease, as follows:

  • Memory changes that disrupt daily life.
  • Challenges in planning or solving problems.
  • Difficulty completing familiar tasks at home, at work or at leisure.
  • Confusion with time or place.
  • Trouble understanding visual and spatial relationships .
  • New problems with words in speaking or writing.
  • Misplacing things and losing the ability to retrace steps.
  • Decrease in judgment or poor judgment .
  • Withdrawal from work or social activities.
  • Changes in mood and personality.

If you notice these signs in your loved one, the Alzheimer’s Association recommends that you consul a physician. An early diagnosis will provide better opportunities for treatment. In addition, estate planning, asset protection and financial planning opportunities through your elder law attorney are more available to the older client before dementia and memory loss becomes severe.

The modern developments in estate planning for the older client involve asset protection, and a plan to determine how an increased need for care will be paid for over time.
