Getting In Accidents
Are you constantly tripping or falling? It could be more than just being clumsy. If you notice your loved one frequently having accidents such as falling or tripping, it could be a sign of early dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Research shows that people with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease later in life are prone to higher risks of falling. The accidents usually start happening before they get a diagnosis. Even though falling can be accidental, it’s essential to understand that it’s a sign of dementia. Another illness associated with falling includes progressive supranuclear palsy, a brain disorder. If you notice your family member or friend having many accidents, it may be time to speak to them about their risk for dementia.
