About 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.
Treating Memory Concerns at UT Health Austin
Depending on the suspected cause for memory problems, different treatment options will be chosen. Some forms of memory loss can be treated. It is important to seek a comprehensive evaluation if there are changes in cognition to determine the cause and learn about available treatments.
