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.
