Worried about your own or someone else’s memory?
Everybody forgets things from time to time. But if you are noticing problems with your memory, or the memory of someone close to you, it’s important to speak to a GP. Memory problems do not always mean dementia. They can also be a sign of other conditions including depression, infections and vitamin deficiencies, so it is important to speak to a GP about them.
It may not be anything to worry about, but it’s always better to get these things checked out. The earlier you see your GP the earlier you can get a diagnosis and the help and support you need.
