Your memory often changes as you grow older. But memory loss that disrupts daily life is not a typical part of ageing. It may be a symptom of dementia. Dementia is not a part of natural ageing, nor is memory loss the only symptom. If you have one or more of the following 10 symptoms which you are concerned about or which are affecting your daily life, it’s a good idea to visit your GP. There are other conditions which can have similar symptoms so it is important to find out what might be causing them.
While people with a dementia might share similar symptoms, each person is unique. They still remain the same person they were before.
