Being forgetful at times is a normal part of aging, but it is important to identify the difference between dementia and age-related memory loss. Memory loss that comes with aging does not have much impact on your performance as well as your ability to go about doing activities.
Currently, there is no known cure for dementia, and it is hence essential to diagnose dementia early. Early diagnosis of dementia allows you to make the most of their abilities and benefit from both drug and non-drug-related treatments available.
