Tips on Impaired Judgment and Alzheimer's

Posted July 29, 2013

 

Are you worried that your loved one has impaired judgment?

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Has the person recently made questionable decisions about money management?

  • Has he made odd choices regarding self-care (such as dressing inappropriately for the weather or neglecting to bathe)?

  • Is it hard for her to plan ahead (such as figuring out what groceries are needed or where to spend a holiday)?

Difficulty with decision-making can be related to other possible symptoms of Alzheimer’s, such as lapses in memory, personality changes, and trouble with abstract thinking. Inappropriate choices are an especially worrisome sign.
