Is there something you're forgetting? Or are you noticing others you care about being a bit more absent-minded than they used to be?
Perhaps it's you, your parents, your partner or spouse, or close friends...
They say elephants never forget, but people can - especially as they grow older - and things do tend to slip our minds.
This can be worrying. Often there's nothing at all to be concerned about.
However, sometimes it can be signs of the early stages of memory loss.
Do you find you are forgetting more often?
Do you often misplace/lose things?
Do you sometimes have trouble finding the right word?
Is it more difficult to learn new things?
Are you finding it's not as easy to remember people's names without really thinking about it?
Have you become less interested in hobbies or activities?
Do you have trouble remembering appointments or family occasions?
Does it take you longer to make decisions?
Have people commented on your memory lapses?
If you answered YES to three or more of these questions, are between 50 and 90 years of age, live within 100km of Christchurch and have a friend or partner who is available to attend appointments with you, YOU MAY BE INTERESTED IN OUR CLINICAL TRIALS.
