Are You Forgetful? Could That Be a Sign of Alzheimer’s Disease?

Shannon Ramos knows how Alzheimer’s disease can change someone.   A family member had the disease, and Ramos now works for the Alzheimer’s Association.

In an interview for KFYO’s public service program This Week in Lubbock, Ramos gave an example of behavior that might, or might not,  indicate someone has the disease.

“We all forget where we put our keys,” Ramos said.  That wouldn’t cause me to me throw up a caution sign that says ‘I need to be tested.’ ”

“It’s when you have the car keys in your hand and you don’t know what to do with them, you don’t remember these keys go to a car, these keys go to my house.  What do you do with the key?”

That, Ramos said, could be a sign of Alzheimer’s.

You can hear the entire interview about Alzheimer’s disease at 6 a.m. Sunday on KFYO.
