Although a new study says that the rate of Dementia in Americans aged 65 and older fell by 24 percent over the last 12 years, the condition still remains to be one of the risks acquired by the aging population in the United States.

Dementia is a syndrome that, according to medical studies, affects memory, thinking, orientation, comprehension, calculation, learning capacity, language, and judgement. Most people with this condition lose their ability to think clearly and remember things. Many Dementia patients are unable to reason effectively and sometimes behave inappropriately.

The early signs of developing Dementia can be subtle and vague. We believe that early detection can help a lot in how family members deal with patients who have Dementia. We, at Angel Connection Nursing Services, want to share with you early symptoms that you must watch out for in your loved ones. Symptoms can include:

  • Problems in remembering things, especially recent events
  • Have an increasing confusion
  • Problems in concentration
  • Changes in personality or behavior
  • Apathy or depression
  • Inability to perform everyday tasks.


To some family members, these signs are normal part of the aging process. Sometimes, symptoms also develop gradually and go unnoticed for a long time. We encourage family members to check their elderly loved ones, and if they notice several signs, consult a doctor for a complete assessment.
