What are the symptoms of mild Alzheimer’s disease?

The symptoms of early stage Alzheimer's disease (AD) may not be obvious to others. Typically, close friends and family members may notice slight changes in their loved one's memory, judgment, language ability, and behavior. The first symptom of the disease is usually memory loss, with the most recent memories affected first.

Other possible signs of early stage AD include the following:
  • Memory problems or forgetfulness
  • Apathy, lack of initiative, or decreased motivation
  • Language difficulties
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Moodiness or emotional volatility 
  • Discomfort with change
  • Trouble remembering how to do everyday activities
  • Increasing financial irresponsibility or difficulty handling money
