Dementia Warning Signs Caregivers Should Look For

• Difficulty with everyday tasks. Everyone makes mistakes, but people with dementia may find it increasingly difficult to do things like keep track of monthly bills or follow a recipe while cooking, the Alzheimer’s Association says.

They also may find it hard to concentrate on tasks, take much longer to do them or have trouble finishing them.

• Repetition. Asking a question, hearing the answer and then repeating the same question 15 minutes later, or telling the same story about a recent event multiple times, are causes for concern, internist and geriatric specialist Jason Karlawish, a professor of medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, noted in a 2018 article for AARP.

• Communication problems. Observe if a loved one has trouble joining in conversations or following along with them, stops abruptly in the middle of a thought or struggles to think of words or the name of objects.

  1. Busby said the life expectancy is going down in merica and elsewhere, from the radionuclide flooding of the bioshphere since 1955, beginning with open air nuclear testeng. It destroyed and is destroying in vitro stem cells in gestating fetuses. Stem cell are essential to longevity and the repair of damaged aystems in the body. Our planet is flooded with radionuclides the most toxic chemicals . Radionuclides slowly destroy every organ system. People could do periodic Heavy-Metal Radionuclide-chelations to try to stave aome of it off. It will not help much with the increased flooding and saturation of everything, including the oceans with radionuclides. Early dementias are getting much worse. Dementia can be caused by vascular degeneration, brain plaques, heavy metal intoxication, metaobolic failure. All traced to radionuclide bioccumutaion. Radionucles mutate glial cell and brain cell protein synthesis causing toxic plaque buildup in the brain.
