Red flags

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - Some health problems are difficult to spot. In some cases there are early indicators that there might be a bigger problem.

We have an example in this week's Neighborhood Healthwatch.

In Cloverhill, Dr. Christopher Marshall is helping his patients catch red flags.

These can include misplacing important items, getting lost en route to familiar places, forgetting names and difficulty making routine decisions.

Stay cognitively active by reading, doing crossword puzzles, word games and arts and crafts

If  you have concerns, get evaluated ASAP. It might be easily fixed.
