Lately, you may find yourself having difficulties remembering something. It could be the name of a classmate you used to know, or you could be struggling to do tasks that are familiar to you, like balancing your chequebook. It’s a frustrating feeling, and you may be asking yourself questions like:
- Why can’t I remember this?
- Do I have dementia?
- Do I need to see a doctor?
Getting the answers to these questions can be tricky. The Alzheimer Society of Canada’s website will help you answer these questions and much more.
Our team works closely with geriatricians and family physicians, we encourage individuals concerned about memory loss to speak with their doctor about their memory loss concerns including whether cognitive testing is recommended.
