For every person who develops Alzheimer's, there are thought to be at least another eight whose memory problems are severe enough to affect the quality of their lives. This book addresses all forms of memory loss, organic and non-organic; it explores all forms of memory loss, organic and non-organic. It suggests practical ways of coping, as well as what to do if you are concerned about your tendency to forget things, or if you are caring for someone who has memory difficulties. Topics include:

why memory might go wrong – normal age-related decline, physical illness, worry, medication, hormonal changes, diet, alcohol, and disease
the role of anxiety, depression and stress in memory problems
