Although some walking difficulty is a common part of the aging process, Researchers in Switzerland say a more definite slower pace or varied stride could indicate early signs of memory decline. Their study looked at more than 1,100 elderly adults. They found those with Alzheimer's disease walked much slower than those with mild memory trouble, who also walked much slower than healthy adults. The study was presented at the Alzheimer's Association annual conference over the weekend.
