An award winning clip on Alzheimer’s Disease

This is a locally produced clip that has won the 1st prize in the Alzheimer’s Disease International conference.

It’s a reminder for us to look out for the old folks at home. Early symptoms are often neglected, which leads to fast deterioration in the later stage.

The early symptoms of Alzheimer or dementia are,

Memory Loss
Difficulty in performing familiar tasks, like in the video, the old lady can’t button her blouse properly.
Problems with language
Disorientation to time and place
Poor or decreased judgement
Problems with keeping track of things
Misplacing things
Changes in mood or behaviour
Changes in personality
Loss of initiative
  1. Memory Loss
  2. Difficulty in performing familiar tasks.
  3. Problems with language
  4. Disorientation to time and place
  5. Poor or decreased judgement
  6. Problems with keeping track of things
  7. Misplacing things

While early treatment does not completely cure dementia, it helps to alleviate the symptoms and difficulties for the patient.
