“Situations, where quick decisions are second nature, can become a struggle for those who are suffering from dementia,” said Luca.
“Any unusual, rash actions that are out of character and a potential cause for concern are typical for those with dementia.
“An example of this would be deciding to take essential belongings to a charity shop or wearing clothing that is inappropriate for the weather.
“Poor judgement also encompasses spatial awareness, and therefore clumsiness.”
Losing a sense of direction
“If a loved one suddenly struggles to remember familiar routes, this could be a cause for concern,” warned Luca.
“Forgetting simple directions or routes to familiar places is a common symptom of dementia and should be monitored, as it can often lead to sufferers getting lost or ending up in dangerous places.”
