Question about Senile dementia/Alzheimer's type (SDAT)What are the first signs of Alzheimer's disease?
This is difficult because the diagnosis can be made only with hindsight. An uncharacteristic, persistent and progressively worsening change in behavior is the key matter: not forgetfulness which is common in healthy people. Getting lost in a familiar environment is a symptom that would worry me as the warning of Alzheimer's.
