Dementia

Worried about your memory?


 


Do you...


§  find it hard to follow conversations or programmes on TV?


§  forget the names of friends or everyday objects?


§  notice that you repeat yourself or lose the thread of what you are saying?


§  feel confused even when in a familiar environment?


§  struggle to remember arrangements or appointments you recently made?


§  notice that family members start to comment on your forgetfulness?


 


Memory problems are common, however they can also be an early sign of a medical condition known as dementia. You should seek help from your GP if you have persisting concerns that your memory is deteriorating and it impacts on your everyday abilities.


 


If you're worried about someone else, you should encourage them to make an appointment and perhaps suggest that you go along too.
