We all have memory lapses, at any age. But memory change is a reality over the whole of our lives. It's common to feel worried about memory but how do you know if memory difficulties are normal or the beginnings of dementia? Does your ability to remember change as you get older? ...Can dementia be prevented? Where do you go if you have concerns about memory? And what can we do to get the most out of our memory abilities? We can all become more skilled in managing memory, becoming more confident that we can and will remember. This book explains how memory works and changes that can occur as we get older. It explains the sort of health, attitude and lifestyle factors that can lead to fluctuation in memory and provides practical tips to minimise their effects on memory. The book examines memory during menopause and includes easy-to-follow suggestions for maintaining brain health based on current research about dementia. Memory-Wise focuses primarily on the everyday remembering that is such an important part of our lives. Every hour of the day we're calling on memory. Our capacity to respond to these demands depends on our state of mind at the time, on our health and to some extent on our age. This book will help you to understand and to nurture your own memory.
