Many of us spend more time at work than we do anywhere else. Early symptoms of dementia may make themselves known in that environment.
Driving a vehicle can be a demanding task at the best of times. Early signs that a person is developing dementia may become apparent.
People with dementia may experience difficulties taking public transit, even if it’s a very familiar route they’ve been taking for a long time.
