My wife aged 59 is loosing memory .She remembers old things but forget day to day events .Example : If i tell her today is Friday ,she will ask after some time which day is today .Tomorrow we plan to go for a function .But she forgets it next day .These are some of the symptoms .Is it Dementia?
This is short term memory loss. It can be from dementia but it can also be from other things, so a check up by her doctor should be the first thing on your list. Use cues to help remind her of things. A big calender with the functions on it, pictures of things you've done, anything that helps remind her. We used what we called a reality orientation board, a dry erase board would be ok, with the day, date and season on it.
