Losing things or forgetting things more often?

Worried about memory loss?

Memory loss that starts to impact daily life could be a sign of something more than just normal aging.

This website will try to help you explore whether the memory loss you or someone you know is experiencing could be a sign of early Alzheimer’s disease, another condition, or just normal age-related changes. Not all memory-loss is associated with Alzheimer’s disease.

It will then tell you about two new clinical studies for early Alzheimer’s disease – ENGAGE and EMERGE.

What’s the difference?

Signs of Alzheimer’s disease or dementia include*:

Poor judgment and decision making

Inability to manage a budget

Losing track of the date or the season

Difficulty having a conversation

Misplacing things and being unable to retrace steps to find them

Typical age-related changes

Making a bad decision once in a while

Missing a monthly payment

Forgetting which day it is and remembering later

Sometimes forgetting which word to use

Losing things from time to time

*Please note that just because you have one of these symptoms does not necessarily mean you have Alzheimer’s disease. It may however, be something worth talking to your doctor about.
