World Alzheimer’s Month

September is World Alzheimer’s Month. This month brings awareness to dementia and its impact on families. If you are concerned for someone or yourself it is important to know the early warning signs leading up to an early diagnosis.

– Memory Loss affecting daily activities.

– Difficulty performing tasks.

– Changes in personality.

– Changes in mood and behaviour.

– Impaired Judgement.

The stigma surrounding dementia is also an issue which is why bringing awareness is so important.
