OLLI column | Class to cover aging and memory loss

Increased forgetfulness is a common complaint in aging, and understandably so. As we age, we tend to have more difficulty remembering such things as names of people we just met, where we put our keys, and what we were supposed to pick up at the grocery store. Many people wonder “Is this normal?” or “Should I be worried?” Although severe memory decline is characteristic of diseases such as Alzheimer’s and dementia, these rather minor memory problems, while frustrating, are not cause for alarm.
