Achieve the right words.
Collecting or linking words can be more difficult.
You can ask the same question, do the same thing, or tell the same story several times.
Sense of confused orientation.
The places you knew well before can seem strange to you. You may also have problems with the routes you have traveled for years because you are no longer known.
Problems following actions.
It can be difficult to trace a person's history or description.
Depression, frustration, and anger are not uncommon in people with dementia.
Loss of interest.

People, places, and events may not seem familiar. You may not remember people you know.
Difficulty performing daily tasks.
It can be difficult to remember how to perform the tasks you have done for many years. In dementia, memory is not always a symptom of occurring. These first 10 signs indicate that your memory and your mental faculties are decreasing.
