Learning to recognize the early warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease is important because treatments are available to help slow the progression of the symptoms. At first, your loved one may exhibit signs of excessive distractibility. For example, he or she may have difficulty remembering appointments, even with frequent reminders from you. Later on, your loved one may have difficulty with routine tasks. For example, he or she might make errors when balancing the checkbook.
