How would you answer - what were the firsts signs of dementia in your case?
In this article - Dotty Wasn't Just Old, She Was Living with Dementia - I wrote about how doctors and my mother's friends just keep telling me "she was just getting old".
In the article, I talk about the subtle changes my mother was undergoing before and right after her diagnosis of probable Alzheimer's. Clearly, the subtle changes in behavior are wrapped up in the changes in memory.

In the article, I write about the things I learned, and continued to learn, near the beginning of my caregiver effort. The article is also worth reading and sharing.
