What are the signs of "abnormal" aging?

  • Dementia
    • While changes to our brains are inevitable, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease go beyond normal memory loss. With dementia, you may find it difficult to remember conversations that just took place, or you might not be able to remember the names of family members. Talking to your doctor is the best way to determine if your memory loss is normal or more serious.
  • Depression
    • Feeling tired or low on energy can be normal as we age, but if you constantly feel drained or sleep for most of the day, it could be a sign of something else. Depression has many symptoms; you might only show a fraction of them.
  • Difficulty with everyday tasks
    • Keeping track of monthly bills, following a recipe, trouble finishing tasks, and troubles with electronics.
    • Frequently forgetting appointments.
  • Personality changes
    • Less interest in people, places, and activities
    • Withdrawal from hobbies/social activities
    • Increased irritability, depression, anxiety
