Although Alzheimer's or any form of dementia can only be diagnosed by a doctor and after a complete medical assessment, some early warning signs shouldn't be overlooked. Early detection does matter, and if you notice any or more of these signs in yourself or your loved one, please see a doctor.

I get it. As one person dies, another is born. We come from the Earth and we end up back in the earth when our time is over.
You could be super practical about how the circle unfolds. We are born, move to diapers, then pull ups, transitioning to big kid pants and then back to pull ups and adult diapers before we move onto our next chapter.
As little ones are learning to walk, they grab onto tables, chairs and eventually playthings with wheels - providing stability and making walking a bit easier. On the other end of the circle, adult walkers are introduced (just not as pretty and colorful as the kid version).

I was at Walmart yesterday and the lady checking my groceries asked, “How are you?”
“Fine,” I answered, “And how are you?”
Thank goodness neither of us answered the question with great thought as to how things were really going. What if she had launched into a story about her husband’s cousin’s wife’s surgery with complete gory details while the person in line behind me tried to run over me with his cart?

Chris Graham is a former soldier and lives in Oxfordshire. He and his partner have a two month old son named Dexter. Chris and his family noticed that he was “a little bit forgetful” a while ago. He is now 39 years old and loves to ride the bike.
Kelly Watson is 41 years old. She is a former civil servant and single mother. Her daughter Holly is 17 years old. She started having problems with coordination and memory loss with 37. Doctors assumed that this was a sign of depression.
Chris and Kelly are definitely people whom you wish a happy and healthy future, even without knowing them in person.
Unfortunately, they have one thing in common.
They belong to the 5% of people living with “younger onset dementia”.
