Symptoms of Alzheimer's disease

Alzheimer's disease is characterised by a progression of symptoms, which start slowly and steadily become worse and worse in time.

Early symptoms (mild to moderate)

The early symptoms are normally not noticed at first, as they can be quite mild and signal a normal part of ageing (occasionally forgetting some things). Once the symptoms increase and worsen, they are noticed by other people.


Later symptoms (severe)

At this stage, the symptoms are starting to be noticed by other people.

Late-stage symptoms (very severe)

This is the final stage of Alzheimer's disease, where the disease progresses to such a point where the person loses all body movement and finally dies due to inability to control their bodily functions (including breathing).
