Cognitive impairment is a very broad term defining anything that blocks someones cognitive processes. As Alzheimer's is a mental illness that affects cognitive processes it is fair to say that this is the chief symptom.

These symptoms can be early indicators of Alzheimer's:

  • Forgetting recent conversations or events
  • Forgetting names of places or objects
  • Regularly repeating themselves
  • Taking longer to make decisions and being unwilling to try new things

These are a few indicators but are not exclusive to Alzheimer's, it may be that someone is simply having a bad day, it is good to keep a record of any symptoms and if they are developing to see your local doctor.
