Unfortunately, the initial signs of Alzheimer’s or dementia are usually the most difficult to spot. It may be months or longer before family members realize that a loved one is forgetting a few too many things or is confused too frequently. Often, these first signs are dismissed as “natural aging.” However, neither Alzheimer’s nor dementia is a natural part of growing old.
