25 Signs and Symptoms of Alzheimer's Disease
Finding car keys in the freezer, the remote in a sock drawer, or routinely discovering other "missing" items in strange spots is usually a strong indicator that your family member may be suffering from dementia.

Often they'll also become suspicious and accuse someone else of hiding or stealing their belongings.
