Is it Dementia or Alzheimer’s?

As we age, some memory loss and confusion now and again is normal. We all have days where we lose the car keys or forget an appointment. What we need to know are the symptoms of something more serious than forgetfulness cause by everyday stress. If you suspect your loved one may be developing Alzheimer’s Disease or Dementia, it’s best to speak with an expert physician.

Neither illness occurs overnight and there’s a difference between Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease.

The following are some signs of dementia as opposed to Alzheimer’s:

Dementia 

  • Short term memory loss
  • Confusion and difficulty concentrating
  • Slight changes in personality and behavior
  • Inability to think problems through, needs step-by-step instructions
  • Forgetting where something is or when an event took place

Alzheimer’s

  • Forgetting names of people or things
  • Difficulty completing familiar tasks
  • Severe changes in personality, hygiene, mood and behavior
  • Problems with abstract thinking, difficulty understanding time and place
  • Forgetting the item exists or that the event ever happened

Some types of Dementia are treatable and can be caused by certain medical conditions such as:

  • Reactions to medications or nutritional deficiencies
  • Vision or hearing problems
  • Infections
  • Brain tumors
  • Hardening of the arteries
  • Severe stress or painful emotions
