Worried About Your Memory

As we get older, many of us worry about our memory getting worse. It can be difficult to tell whether this is a sign of an underlying condition, like dementia, or if it perhaps just old age. If you are worried about your memory then there is help and support available to you.

You should seek help right away if you are worried about your memory. The quicker a doctor sees you the quicker you can get help and support. There are plenty of ways of making your life easier now if you need help with your memory. You can use the latest technology or use older methods like making lists and ticking each item off.

Seeking advice about your memory is always the first step into receiving support. The support you may need can be given to you at home and so there is no need to worry about being put into a care home.

The help and support available to you is actually to help you live independently for as long as possible. The support you can receive is designed to help and not to hinder you.

If you are worried about someone else's memory then it is important to speak to them about it. They may have the same worries as you but are too afraid to speak up about it. They may need you to make the first step and help them get the support that they need.

If you are worried about your memory then do speak to your GP. You are not alone in feeling scared about losing your memory but you also aren't alone when it comes to the help and support available to you. Seeking help is the first step in feeling happier and healthier.
