What are the first signs of having dementia?
Memory Loss is one of the most common early signs, more commonly- short term memory loss. This comes as the damage to the brain associated with dementia often affects the part of the brain which creates and holds memories. This might be forgetting which day or year it is, or where you’ve put something. This is one of the most common early signs and is typically noticed by others, however it is also a symptom of being forgetful- if it is out of character it can be more noticeable.
