The Doctors share that every 65 seconds someone in America develops Alzheimer’s disease, and discuss a reported early warning sign that may help you spot the disease.
According to Georgetown University scientists, an early warning sign is someone forgetting to pay their bills.
The Doctors note that remembering to pay bills requires a fair amount of cognitive reasoning, and not doing this or not remembering could be an indicator of a possible issue.
They suggest if you have a loved one who is past due on bills that you urge them to speak to their doctor and to get checked for possible Alzheimer’s disease.
