Spotting Dementia

Dementia is the term given to conditions relating to the deterioration of mental processes. This includes changes in personality, cognitive reasoning and memory loss with diseases such as Alzheimer's.

According to the NHS, these are some of the early signs that you can look out for in dementia:

  • Memory loss

  • Difficulty concentrating

  • Finding it hard to carry out familiar daily tasks, such as getting confused over the correct change when shopping

  • Struggling to follow a conversation or find the right word

  • Being confused about time and place

  • Mood changes

There’s no doubt we all might experience these things from time to time but for the elderly and sufferers of illness, these little hurdles can start to become big problems in everyday life. So it’s important to take them on early.
