Memory Issues

As we get older, most of us experience some memory problems now and again. Being forgetful or getting confused doesn’t necessarily mean you have dementia. These problems can be caused by common treatable conditions, including:

 • anxiety or depression

 • side-effects of medication

 • stress

 • vitamin deficiencies

 • thyroid problems

 • constipation

 • dehydration

 • urinary tract infections

 If you’re worried, it’s always best to talk to your doctor and share specific examples of symptoms you’ve experienced. This will either set your mind at ease or, if you do have dementia, get you the help and support you need
