Is it Alzheimer's or just aging?
Are you or someone you know having some memory lapses? Has the possibility of Alzheimer’s disease been mentioned? Due to the nature of my business, frequently I’m asked about the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease or whether I suspect Alzheimer’s after being presented with a description of some incidences of memory loss. My usual response to these requests is to suggest that the party involved see their physician for a full diagnosis. I also strongly indicate that all memory loss in seniors is not indicative of Alzheimer’s and not all dementia is Alzheimer’s.
