Has Your Older Adult Experienced Sudden Personality Changes? Possible Causes

GrandmaGranddaughter_shutterstock_495042838When someone we care about suddenly acts like a different person we're rightfully alarmed. Medications are frequently the cause and this can happen with anyone at any age. Since older adults generally have more fragile systems, these reactions may occur in that age group more often. Additionally, a urinary tract infection (UTI) might cause a similar reaction in an older adult.

While any time you see this, it's essential to contact a medical professional, if you're mostly looking for information, you can read more on the Egsancares blog:
