Worried about your memory? Get our booklet

Download or order a copy of our free booklet with more information about memory worries.

Many of us notice that our memory gets worse as we get older, but it can be difficult to tell whether this is a sign of an underlying condition like dementia.

Talking about dementia can be frightening, but seeking help early offers the best chance of getting the right support, advice and treatment.

This free resource from Alzheimer's Society is designed to help you understand more about memory loss, so if you are worried – either about your own or someone else’s memory – you can seek advice and, if necessary, get treatment.
