Alzheimer's Disease: 10 Warning Signs
The Alzheimer's Association Greater New Jersey Chapter

Memory loss that disrupts everyday life is not part of the normal aging process. It is a symptom of dementia, a gradual and progressive decline in memory, thinking, and reasoning skills. The most common cause of dementia is Alzheimer's disease, a disorder that results in the loss of brain cells.

The Alzheimer's Association believes that it is critical for people with dementia and their families to receive information, care, and support as early as possible. To help family members and health care professionals recognize warning signs of Alzheimer's disease, the Association has developed a checklist of common symptoms.

The Alzheimer's Association Greater New Jersey Chapter provides programs and services to individuals with Alzheimer's disease, their families and caregivers who live in the New Jersey counties of Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Hunterdon, Mercer, Middlesex, Monmouth, Morris, Ocean, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex, Union and Warren. It is estimated that there are currently more than 350,000 individuals and their family caregivers in these counties who are struggling to cope with the challenges of Alzheimer's disease. Association programs and services include: education and training, support groups, respite assistance, and a toll-free telephone HelpLine.
