Dementia symptoms: How fast do you walk? The ‘early’ sign pointing to cognitive decline


These new findings are further backed by a meta-analysis from 2020.

Looking at nearly 9,000 American adults, the research shared that a dual association between walking speed and memory decline could predict dementia in later life.

The charity explains: “[Dementia patients] may walk repeatedly around the house or leave the house at any time of day or night.”
