There are many reasons why memory impairment may occur.
Some people become aware of a decline in their memory whilst those close to them feel there is no problem at all. Conversely some families report deterioration in the memory of a family member to the surprise of the individual concerned.
To decide what the underlying problem is takes time and often requires specialist assessment in a memory clinic.
New research that we are pioneering allows for the detection of Alzheimer’s disease at the very earliest stage (Prodromal Alzheimer’s disease)
Glasgow Memory Clinic offers a free memory screening service for those over 50 who are concerned about memory decline and who are potentially interested in participating in our research program. Contact us for more information.
