10signs.org Signs of Alzheimer's Grandmother & Granddaughter Commercial

10signs.org has launched a new campaign that aims to raise awareness on the signs of Alzheimer’s disease and highlight that early diagnosis can help decrease the burden of the disease and allow more time for critical care planning.

“Losing the fear of looking foolish comes with age. Losing your way in your own home doesn’t,” the voiceover says in one of the 30-second ads, which features a grandmother dancing with her grandmother without worrying that she might look foolish. The narrator then adds that confusion with time and place may be a sign of Alzheimer’s and mentions that early detection gives you and your loved ones time to plan for the future.

Onscreen lines urge viewers to learn the warning signs of Alzheimer’s and lists some of them.
