Life is a process of aging. Faces age, body functions age, and the brain ages with age. Although the brain will gradually decline, it is enough to support the average life expectancy of most people. But some people's brains look like rusty gears, and the areas responsible for memory don't work properly. They may be suffering from Alzheimer's.
Memory disorders are difficult to recall. It mainly occurs in the early stages, especially near memory disorders, that is, things that happened decades ago or even minutes ago cannot be recalled. The patient's daily life manifests as "throwing the three," and "forgetting when you're done," asking questions that you think about or repeating the same thing over and over.
Language barriers have difficulty finding words. It is often the earliest language barrier in Alzheimer's disease. It is mainly manifested in the lack of suitable words when speaking, the lack of substantive vocabulary and the empty talk, or the excessive interpretation of expressions due to the difficulty in finding words. Nagging.
Visual spatial skills impairment. In the early stage of Alzheimer's disease, it is very likely that visual spatial skills are impaired. The symptoms are that the position of the object cannot be accurately determined. Some dementia patients may get lost in the familiar environment in the early stage of the disease.
Writing difficulties. The content words that are written due to writing difficulties are unsatisfactory. For example, if the letter cannot be written clearly, this is often the first symptom that attracts the attention of family members, especially some elderly people with better cultural accomplishments. Research has suggested that writing errors are related to distant memory disorders.
Failure to recognize and use. Misunderstanding means that the patient cannot recognize the object, although the tactile or visual elements of the object can be recognized at this time. Apraxia means that although you have normal ability and subjective desires, you cannot perform the purposeful actions you have learned
Calculating obstacles. Computational disorders often appear in the middle of Alzheimer's, but they can also manifest in the early stages, such as when shopping is often not calculated or miscalculated. There are many reasons for computational obstacles, which may be due to visual spatial obstacles (the formula cannot be calculated correctly), or aphasia not understanding the requirements of arithmetic operations, or it may not be possible for primary calculations.
Poor judgment and distraction. Alzheimer's patients can suffer from poor judgment, loss of generalization, and distraction at an early stage.
Mental disorders. Mental symptoms can manifest themselves as self-centeredness, mania, delusional delusions, depression, personality changes, delirium, etc. in the early stage, and their emotions are not easy to control.
Personality changes. Personality changes are very significant in some patients, most of them become extremely sensitive or suspicious, or become increasingly irritable and stubborn.
Behavioral changes, movement disorders. In Alzheimer's patients, the movement phenomenon is usually normal in the early stage. In the middle stage of the disease, the behavior of the patients is naive and awkward, often performing ineffective labor and unintended labor.
