Our Health: Matters of Memory

Do you know that?
About 40% of people aged 65 or older have age associated memory impairment. Only about 1% of them will progress to dementia each year.
Have you ever asked yourself?
Is it normal to have a bit of difficulty with your memory, as you get older?
Can you adapt to memory changes by using calendars, writing lists, smart phones, and mnemonics?
How do you know if there is something more serious going on?
If your family or friends are noticing changes, or if you worry about your ability to function, what should you do?
Can medical conditions affect your memory?
What’s the difference between Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia?
How can you help others who suffer memory loss?
Our panelists will discuss these questions and more:
John McCullough, a long time Midland resident and community and family supporter Dr. Arleen Astell, a PhD psychologist from Ontario Shores Center for Mental Health Sciences and the Research Chair in Community Management of Dementia Dr. Kevin Young, an Internist and Geriatrician who works at Orillia Soldiers Memorial Hospital.
