What is Memory Loss?
Memory loss is unusual forgetfulness that can be caused by brain damage due to disease or injury, or it can be caused by severe emotional trauma.

What is considered “normal” memory loss?
There is a difference between normal aging and Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. Occasionally forgetting names or appointments as you age can be a sign of memory loss, but because it happens occasionally, it does not necessarily point to Alzheimer’s. People with Alzheimer’s tend to forget recently learned information and forget things more often than others as they age. Alzheimer’s is progressive, meaning that the disease gets worse over time. If you have any concerns about your memory, you should speak to your doctor immediately.
