Worried about your ability to do your job? Ever feel like it's getting harder and harder to keep up, or that you just can't remember everything and keep it all straight?
There are many possible explanations for these feelings, including stress, fatigue and busyness, as well as companies trying to do more work with less people.
However, if it seems like you're the only one with these difficulties, they persist even after life has settled down, and you or your partner notice these concerns frequently at home as well, it's worth getting checked out by a physician for early onset dementia.
Early onset dementia, which can be due to Alzheimer's or another dementia, affects approximately 200,000 Americans. Early detection can be helpful for effective coping and treatment, so don't delay an evaluation if you're recognizing yourself or a loved one in the signs.
