What are the Signs of Alzheimer’s Disease?

Alzheimer’s disease is a brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills. It can also cause changes in a person’s behavior and personality. Symptoms vary from person to person and may include:

  • Having more trouble coming up with words compared to other people who are the same age
  • Vision and spatial issues, such as awareness of the space around them
  • Impaired reasoning or judgment, which can impact decisions
  • Taking longer to complete normal daily tasks
  • Increased anxiety and/or aggression
  • Repeating questions

Explore additional signs and symptoms of Alzheimer’s on the Alzheimers.gov website. This information is also available in Spanish.
