Know the 10 Signs

#2 Challenges in Planning or Solving Problems

"One of the first indications that something was awry was missing appointments that were on my schedule. Frequently, I put times down wrong, or failed to follow the time I had down correctly, arriving too early, late or not at all.

Now that I am diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, I keep two schedules to avoid missing anything. At one time I didn’t keep a schedule. A busy lawyer, I had every appointment, deadline and due date in my head.

With Alzheimer’s, I know I need to take these extra steps and it helps me be able to continue to be active and involved."

-Mike Donohue
