> The patient may start getting stressed as they will find it difficult to perform simple everyday tasks. The patient may find it hard to remember location,locate an address or forget the names of family and friends.

> Mild dementia sets in. This is when mood swings become prominent.

> The patient may require assistance to perform simple activities.

> The patient will start forgetting names of family members and close acquaintances. This is also the time when the patient may start requiring full-time assistance. Mood swings are also very common and sleep disorders can set in.
