2. Avoiding Social Gatherings and Situations.
This is something that many men tend to face regardless of the diagnosis, but if you notice that your loved one or friend is no longer social and wants to give up interests or avoid social gatherings, then this could be a sign of early dementia. There is a time when we all need a little alone time, which is fine, but when this turns into something regular, then it could suggest that there is an issue with cognition. Consider talking with your friend or loved one if you notice this behavior and make sure to consult with a doctor as well.
