Misplacing Things Page Featured Image

Understanding age-related forgetfulness is key to understanding memory loss.

We’ve all had the experience of misplacing our glasses, keys, or the remote control, and occasionally we’ve even forgotten the name of a neighbor or passing acquaintance. However, when forgetfulness and memory loss begin to affect a person’s ability to function independently, it may be a sign of dementia-related memory loss. An early diagnosis of the cause of the dementia is key to preventing continued memory loss; some forms of cognitive impairment are completely treatable.

Symptoms of mild cognitive impairment include frequently misplacing items or placing them in odd locations or repeatedly performing tasks due to short-term memory loss. An individual may also experience trouble remembering the names of new acquaintances or have trouble participating in conversations.
