Sanders-Brown expert: How to spot warning signs of dementia

Family cooks together in kitchen.

/ by UK HealthCare

The holidays offer the opportunity to reunite with seldom-seen relatives. Family gatherings often bring people together over traditional foods, activities and recollections of the past. If you notice memory changes in your older family members, how do you know whether what you're seeing is just part of getting older or something more serious? 

According to Kelly Parsons of UK Sanders-Brown Center on Aging, there's a fine line between normal brain aging and dementia.

On this week’s episode of “Behind the Blue,” Parsons joins us to provide tips on the warning signs of dementia and what to do when you worry that grandma or grandpa might have Alzheimer's. She also gives advice on how to make the holidays less stressful for everyone when a family member has Alzheimer's.
