A is for Alzheimer’s
5 Early Signs of Alzheimer’s...
All beginning with A
Here we take a look at five of the early signs of Alzheimer’s and exactly what they mean…
Agnosia is where an individual is unable to recognise familiar objects, tastes, sounds or other sensations.
Amnesia is memory loss.
Anomia is the inability to remember the correct names of things.
Aphasia is where an individual is unable to express themselves through speech.
Apraxia is where an individual does not use an object for it’s correct use as they are unable to identify the object.
It is important to remember that having one, or a couple, of these symptoms does not necessarily mean that you or a loved one has Alzheimer’s and you should always seek professional advice but it is always important to keep an eye on changes and an early diagnosis can be so beneficial for those diagnosed and their loved ones.
