How do I know if I have a memory problem?

0

Your memory can be affected by several factors, including certain medical conditions, substance use and ageing.

The first step would be to do a memory test. Ask a friend to admister a short memory test.

If you receive poor scores on this test, discuss your concerns with your general practitioner. Alzheimer’s disease is very common in people over 60. Learn more about this condition in our Alzheimer’s and dementia Centre.
