1. Types of memory problems
Memory problems vary from person to person. What you consider to be a problem depends partly on what you need or expect to be able to do.
Some very common memory problems include:
- forgetting people’s names
- struggling to remember day-to-day events or experiences
- misplacing items (such as keys or glasses) around the house
- getting lost in a familiar place or on a familiar journey
- finding it hard to start or follow conversations
- forgetting appointments or important dates (such as birthdays)
- struggling with the steps in a recipe.
