Right now, roughly six million Americans are living with Alzheimer's disease (AD), a progressive form of dementia that affects memory and other cognitive functions.

A study published in JAMA Internal Medicine analyzed the medical records and consumer credit reports of over 80,000 Medicare beneficiaries and found that those who ultimately went on to develop Alzheimer's were more likely to have financial troubles.

Specifically, they more frequently missed at least two financial payments in the six years leading up to their diagnosis than those in similar demographics who did not develop any form of dementia.

Additionally, individuals who went on to be diagnosed with Alzheimer's were more likely to have subprime credit two and a half years before their diagnosis.

"It's not uncommon at all for us to hear that one of the first signs that families become aware of is around a person's financial dealings," Beth Kallmyer, MSW, vice president for care and support at the Alzheimer's Association, shared with The New York Times.

In a study co-authored by Gresenz, researchers found that those with Alzheimer's were 27 percent more likely than others to lose a significant sum of money in their savings accounts, checking accounts, stocks and bonds leading up to diagnosis.

Though there is currently no cure for Alzheimer's, looking out for early signs of dementia and receiving early intervention can significantly alter the course of your illness.
