These are some question that might come to you if you are worried over your memory.
What should I do if I’m worried about my memory?
See your doctor. If your doctor thinks it’s serious, you may need to have a complete checkup, including blood and urine tests. You also may need to take tests that check your memory, problem solving, counting, and language skills. In addition, you may need a CAT scan of the brain. These pictures can show normal and problem areas in the brain. Once the doctor finds out what is causing your memory problems, ask about what is the best treatment for you.
What can family members do to help?
Family members and friends can help you live as normal a life as possible. They can help you exercise, visit with friends, and keep up your daily routines. They can remind you of the time of day, where you live, and what is happening at home and in the world.
Some families use the following things to help with memory:
• Big calendars
• Lists of the plans for each day
• Notes about safety in the home
• Written directions for using common household items
