Are memory problems part of the normal aging

Introduction Tab Video Transcript

Hi, I’m Dr Ria Jones and I’m a geriatric psychologist.

I’ve recently been working with a client with memory problems and I could really use your help.

What are the factors to consider in determining whether memory problems are part of the normal aging process, or whether there is something else going on, for example, Alzheimer’s?

Are there any strategies that can help a person who is experiencing memory problems?

Those are the questions you will answer when you Make a Decision.

To answer those questions, you will Investigate the Evidence I have collected from the life of a 72 year old woman named Brenda.

But before you Investigate the Evidence, take some time to Consult the Research I’ve collated for you.

You will be able to come here to Consult the Research anytime you wish.

Researchers have found that some memory decline is a normal part of the aging process, but we also know that the risk of Alzheimer’s increases with age. How do we know what is normal aging and what might be Alzheimer’s? Take a moment to Consult the Research on these factors.

Then you will Investigate the Evidence from Brenda’s life before you Make a Decision about what might be going on for her.
