TLDR version. A study in the JAMA says:
Researchers compared the medical information to credit data from 1999 to 2018, covering up to seven years before dementia patients received a diagnosis and four years following that diagnosis.
What they found was that those who were diagnosed with dementia were more likely than others to miss payments on bills even before a diagnosis, with some missing payments as early as six years before they knew they had dementia.
IOW Missing payments and a tanking score might mean you need your head checked. It could be physical rather than attitude.The study also looked at credit scores, and found those with dementia were more likely to develop subprime credit scores two and a half years before they were diagnosed, compared with those who were never diagnosed.
