About Memory Concerns

Symptoms of Memory Concerns

Symptoms associated with memory loss may include misplacing items, forgetting names of familiar people or places, difficulty navigating while driving, confusion about the date or time, or struggling with language and word finding. It is very common for people close to the individual to notice these symptoms first, whether it be family members, friends or co-workers.

Risk Factors for Memory Concerns

Memory changes may be caused by conditions such as depression, thyroid disease, vitamin deficiency, infections, side effects of medication or dementia.
