This handbook is for people with mild memory problems. It contains information about memory problems and practical strategies on how to live well with them. Many of the ideas are suggestions from people who have problems with their memory. Others come from people supporting someone with memory problems or are based on research.
Memory loss can be difficult to cope with and frustrating. However, there are ways of managing the problems you’re facing. This handbook should give you some ideas to use or adapt. People have their own ways of helping their memory. What works for one person does not always work for another. Use the suggestions in this booklet to find what works for you. You may want to discuss some of the suggestions with friends and family.
If you have memory loss, you might also be having problems with things like organising, thinking clearly, concentrating, language or seeing things properly. Your symptoms may have resulted in a recent diagnosis of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) or dementia. You may not have a diagnosis at all, but might still be looking for ways to deal with memory problems.
The memory handbook includes the following sections:
- Understanding your memory
- Coping with memory problems
- Memory aids and tools
- Memory strategies
- Staying healthy
- Services and support
- Alzheimer’s Society support services
- Other useful organisations
