Early Symptoms of Dementia
Memory problems particularly remembering recent events

As dementia affects a persons mental abilities, they may find planning and organising difficult, maintaining their independence may also become a problem. A person with dementia therefore usually needs help. Most types of dementia can’t be cured, but if it is detected early there are ways you can slow it down and maintain mental function.
