Symptoms of Memory Loss
As we get older it is not uncommon to be aware of a slight deterioration in memory.
For the majority of individuals, this amounts to no more than slight forgetfulness and does not progress to cause any significant problem. However, some people do experience a progressive decline in their memory and other brain functions, which eventually develop into dementia.
To decide what the underlying problem is takes time and often requires specialist assessment.
Symptoms of dementia may develop gradually and go unnoticed for a long time, so it helps to be informed to know when to be concerned and visit your GP. Here are the top 10 dementia symptoms
It is important to know that symptoms of dementia may develop gradually and go unnoticed for a long time. Also, some people may refuse to act, even when they know something is wrong.
If you or someone you know is showing symptoms associated with dementia, it is important to visit a GP as soon as possible. Alternatively, at Glasgow Memory Clinic, we offer a memory screening service for those over 55 who are concerned about memory decline and who are potentially interested in participating in our research program.
