Our society places great emphasis and identity on one’s occupation, so when someone begins to struggle with memory issues, it creates great stress and frustration on many different levels. Early onset Alzheimer’s disease affects people under the age of 65, so the majority of these individuals will still be actively in the workforce. In many cases, the workplace is often where symptoms are first noticed.
**Please note that we use memory problems and early onset Alzheimer’s disease interchangeably as it relates to the individual in the workplace, as the actual diagnosis of early onset Alzheimer’s disease may happen months or years after symptoms are first noticed.
