TO TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MEMORY LOSS AND DEMENTIA
WHERE DID I LEAVE THOSE KEYS? PRESENTED BY HOME INSTEAD and the EAST SHORE DISTRICT HEALTH DEPARTMENT
Come Join Barbara Naclerio from the East Shore District Health Department and Dave Lapic from Home Instead as they explore Age-Related Memory Loss and the difference between normal aging and dementia.
From forgetting where you put your keys to walking into the doctor’s office on the wrong day to not recalling someone’s name, we all experience some degree of memory loss.
- What is happening in our brains that causes these minor memory lapses and
when should you start get help?
- What can you do to lower your risk of dementia as you age?
- What can I do for others as they deal with forgetfulness and dementia in their lives?
Almost 40 percent of people over the age of 65 experience some form of memory loss. When there is no underlying medical condition causing this memory loss, it is known as age-associated memory impairment, which is considered a part of the normal aging process. Brain diseases like Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias are different.
Come and join in on this discussion about how you can combat memory loss and know when to seek out help.
