When was the last time you have a “seniors moment”? Most of us have all searched the house for the glasses we’re already wearing or forgotten an old friend’s name at one point. But does age really have anything to do with it?
The fact is, many of us had these same moments when we were 25 – it’s a simple part of being human. Yet there are other forgetful moments that could be a warning sign for a frankly terrifying brain condition.
When, then, should we draw the line between normal and worrying?
The Daily Mail recently spoke with multiple experts across the field to compile this helpful list of normal memory lapses, small concerns and potential signs of dementia. While by no means definitive signs of the illness, we strongly recommend checking in with your GP if there is any concern.
