Changes in cognition frequently occur slowly and subtly, and may be hard to detect if you see a person with memory issues on a regular basis. Most older people fear becoming a burden, so they may work hard to appear their normal selves for family gatherings or visits to doctors. However, this strategy can last just so long.
