Could this be the early signs of dementia?

Posted , 1 user is following.

My dad now 71 has always been forgetful, blames it on work stress and that

He sometimes has sleep disorder which I read online is RBD where he jumped from a bed few years ago and broke a finger, and hit my mom this year, sometimes shouts in his sleep.

Today I found the milk bottle in the cupboard instead of the fridge.

He remembered it was him...

I read online RBD occurs in older men and some develop parkinsons or dementia.

Is it likely this could be the early signs of dementia?
