Memory loss is a part of ageing. But when people experience more memory loss than would be expected when getting older, everyday activities can become confusing.

It is probably time to seek help if you:

  • Feel that your memory loss is progressing and becoming more frequent
  • Are having more difficulty or confusion in performing everyday tasks
  • Are experiencing some changes to your personality

There are multiple conditions that can produce these symptoms so it is important to have a thorough medical check.
