Q:

Why is early diagnosis of Alzheimer's important?


A:

An early visit to a health care professional for memory loss and thinking problems can help determine if symptoms are caused by Alzheimer's or some other condition and will help to establish a course of treatment as quickly as possible. It can help ensure that medications are not contributing to problems and can address psychosocial factors. It also helps in planning for the future, preventing complications, learning effective caregiving strategies and using financial resources effectively.
