@Setanta,
Losing your glasses doesn't prove a thing. Not knowing what they are fore could be a bad sign.

@roger,
True, my wife losses her glasses all the time - even if she keeps one in every room! She isn't senile - yet! LOL

@cicerone imposter,
I know that because I suffer from depression, I'm at high risk to being diagnosed with dementia as I age.

You'll never know.It'll bug everyone else around you. You'll be fairly content.

@bobsal u1553115,
No so, during some of the stages you are very aware you are losing your cognitive abilities, and it can be very upsetting.

@bobsal u1553115,
Trust me, that is Sooooo not true. I've experienced my oldest sister going through all the stages of Alzheimer's. It's very frustrating for the victim as well as the family...and not contenting in the least. Also not something to be joking around about.

@chai2,
Another test used to identify alzeimers.
Quote:
Clock drawing

Numerous versions of the clock-drawing test have been devised, with many scoring algorithms [Brodaty and Moore, 1997]. Patients are typically asked to draw a clock face with numbers and hands (indicating a dictated time). It was designed as a quick and acceptable screening test for dementia. It is fast, requires no training and most scoring methods are fairly simple. It shows fairly good sensitivity and specificity as a screening test. It assesses only a very narrow part of cognitive dysfunction seen in dementia, and many other conditions (e.g. stroke) will affect it directly.

The clock drawing test and others can be found here.

Okay, draw a clock set at 3:22pm.
