Experts say to act when warning signs are detected in the behavior of their loved ones. She pointed out that confusion, fidgeting, lethargy and anxiety can be symptoms of dementia. In addition, a person’s attitude towards his appearance changes, he can either become indifferent or, on the contrary, choose an overly bright outfit with a lot of accessories, the doctor added.

It is also worth paying attention to the patient’s speech, if there is a predominance of parasitic words, this can be an alarm signal, the neurologist added. Among other things, with dementia, there is a fear of everything new. “If you’ve changed the lock on the front door, put in the intercom, it can really make you cringe. Or you gave a new phone to a relative and it is lying in a box,” explained the doctor. Repetitive movements, manifestation of delusional symptoms, for example, unreasonable suspicion, are also signs of the disease. “And, of course, memory impairment, they don’t remember the current, momentary, but they remember well what happened 20 years ago,” Anikina summarized.
