Alzheimer’s and other dementias cause
memory, thinking, and behavior problems
that interfere with daily living. The
Alzheimer’s Association developed a new
10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s education
program to help people recognize common
signs of the disease and know what to watch
for in themselves and others. The program
explores typical age-related changes, describes
common signs of Alzheimer’s and dementia,
offers tips for how to approach someone
about memory concerns, and explains the
importance of early detection and benefits of
diagnosis.

During the middle stage of dementia, the
person with the disease often starts to exhibit
new behaviors that can be confusing. These
behaviors are a form of communication
and are essential to understanding the
needs of the person with dementia. To help
decipher behaviors and determine how best
to respond, the Alzheimer’s Association
offers the Understanding and Responding
to Dementia-Related Behavior program.
Learn how to identify common triggers for
behaviors associated with dementia, explain
the process for assessing and identifying
challenging behaviors, and various strategies
to address some common dementia-related
behaviors.
