Event description

Description




We've all lost our keys or forgotten an acquaintance's name.

When we’re young, we don’t tend to pay much attention to these lapses, but as we grow older, sometimes we worry about what these incidents mean. While it’s true that certain brain changes are inevitable when it comes to ageing, major memory problems are not necessarily one of them. That’s why it’s important to know the difference between normal age-related forgetfulness and the symptoms that may indicate a potentially serious problem – and one that may be treatable.


Target Audience

This small group workshop is designed for anyone who has a particular interest in gaining an insight into these important issues. It is also appropriate for those who suspect they or someone close to them may be at risk of developing a memory deficit, and would like to understand how best to deal with these potentially challenging issues.

The audience will therefore be drawn from diverse backgrounds including private individuals, the charity/ voluntary sector, health and other statutory services.


Contents

This workshop aims and related contents are:

  • To provide better understand of what memory loss is, and the difference between memory loss and dementia
  • To identify the difference between reversible and irreversible types of memory loss
  • To give guidance on when it is appropriate to seek help
  • To identify sources of reliable advice, from effective diagnosis/assessment through to proven effective interventions, including currently available drug treatments

The number of attendees is limited to ensure a highly interactive small group environment. All participants will be asked to agree to respect the confidentiality of others attending the workshop.
