- Difficulty performing daily tasks and chores.
- Inability to perform more complex tasks, such as driving or paying bills.
- Being unaware that you have memory loss.
- Showing poor judgment.
- Exhibiting significant behavioral changes, such as excessive worrying, or often feeling agitated or suspicious.
