Alzheimer's disease is a progressive neurological disorder that affects millions of individuals worldwide. While there is currently no cure for Alzheimer's, early detection and intervention can significantly improve the quality of life for both patients and their caregivers. This blog aims to raise awareness about early signs of Alzheimer's disease, enabling families to recognize the symptoms and seek appropriate medical attention.

Forgetting recently learned information, important dates, or events, and relying on memory aides or family members for reminders.

Struggling to follow a plan, work with numbers, or complete familiar tasks, such as managing finances or cooking a familiar recipe.
3. Confusion with time or place:
Losing track of dates, seasons, or the passage of time. Getting disoriented or lost in familiar places.
4.Challenges with language:
Having trouble finding the right words, following or joining a conversation, or repeating oneself.
