As we age, it’s natural to become a bit forgetful. But when our aging loved ones begin to lose items, forget to pay bills on time or have trouble remembering dates and names, it can become a cause for concern. When does forgetfulness stop becoming a normal part of aging and lead to something more serious?
Many emotional and health-related issues can lead to forgetfulness, but it’s important to know the difference between mild forgetfulness and signs of Alzheimer’s or dementia. Franciscan Ministries is sharing this free resource so you can get the facts surrounding memory loss, recognize the symptoms of dementia or Alzheimer’s and ensure your loved one is able to receive the care and support they need.
