5 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s Disease

Alzheimer’s is a brain disease that causes a slow decline in memory, reasoning and thinking skills. Every case experiences various symptoms that only your physician can diagnose, but looking out for warning signs may help you determine if you should schedule a visit.

1. Memory loss and forgetfulness
Memory loss is one of the most common signs of Alzheimer’s or dementia. Anyone can sometimes forget details of a conversation, but early signs of Alzheimer’s cause a person to forget an entire conversation. They may forget important dates or even faces of family members.

2. Lack of concentration and confusion
People with Alzheimer’s may forget where they are or how they got there. They can also lose track of the seasons and passage of time.

3. Losing things
Alzheimer’s patients put things in unusual places and tend to lose them this way. They may swear an item was somewhere when it doesn’t turn up in it’s expected place and become irritable.

4. Difficulty completing familiar tasks
People with Alzheimer’s often have trouble doing things that are part of their routine. They may need help to remember the rules of their favorite game or how to drive to a familiar location.

5. Change in personality or mood swings
Patients tend to exhibit mood swings or a change in their character. They may become fearful, anxious, or depressed when out of their comfort zone.

Every person’s journey through Alzheimer’s is unique. If you think someone you love has Alzheimer’s disease, contact your doctor. For those living with Alzheimers or other dementia-related illness, Orchard offers specialized memory care and senior living services to the Atlanta, Tucker, and Decatur areas. The Orchard is here to assist you with compassion and consideration. Learn more about our Memory Care programs by contacting us at 770-284-1293.

Orchard at Tucker Partnering with Innovative Providers to Help our Residents Improve all Aspects of Their Lives.

Orchard at Tucker has now partnered with Megan Kumming, M.A., L.A.P.C. of Peachtree DBT. DBT stands for Dialectical Behavior Therapy. Research has shown that DBT is effective in treating a wide range of other disorders such as substance dependence, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). DBT is a supportive collaborative therapy that is behaviorally focused and clinically proven to be highly effective. Very few providers nationally are able to bring such cutting edge therapy to the community. Meghan and her team understands that in many instances residents move into a community in the midst of chaos or confusion. Family members, very often are just as effected and wind up in need of supportive therapy services and cooping mechanisms. Both residents and their families are often lookingDBTfor acceptance and desiring to make significant positive changes in their lives after a series of stressful and or traumatic events or circumstances. Because every person has a different need, Skills Classes are available as well as individual sessions. For more information about this revolutionary program contact Megan Kumming directly at mkumming@peachtreedbt.com, or visit the website at peachtreeDBT.com
