Poor memory may start out as a minor and annoying behaviour pattern. But the condition can easily turn grave leading to various nervous disorders turning one’s life upside-down.
Poor memory can lead to several progressive neurological disorders like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and so many in which the degeneration or death of brain cells causes memory loss and cognitive decline.

What is Poor Memory?

Memory is a tricky thing. It often remembers trivial things such as the face of a stranger or a random comment made by a friend and yet it is quick to forget crucial details. However, everyone forgets things from time to time. If one, however, begins facing daily challenges owing to their forgetfulness, the situation may turn graver still. A poor memory generally manifests itself in the form of forgetting information & experiences that a person would normally be able to remember easily.

In its advanced stages, it may cause memory loss or amnesia which can affect short- term or long-term memory.

  • Short-term memories are those that recall things or information that have just happened. These are recent memories.
  • Long-term memories are those that recall events or information that happened a long time ago. They are remote memories.

The most important types of poor memory are as follows:

Mild cognitive impairment

Mild cognitive impairment is a condition in which a person suffers from a slight but visible decline in cognitive abilities compared with others of the same age. It may be an early sign of Alzheimer’s disease.

Dementia

It includes the loss of cognitive functioning e.g., learning, thinking, remembering, analysing, visualizing, reasoning and other behavioral abilities to the extent that it affects one’s daily life. Dementia leads to a continuous decline in thinking pattern, behavioural & social skills, interfering with a person’s daily independent functions. The symptoms of Alzheimer’s are mild and unidentifiable at the preliminary stage, gaining severity over time.

Alzheimer’s is the most common type of dementia– a group of conditions that brings about impairment of two important brain functions inclusive of judgment and memory loss.

The number of people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease increases substantially after the age of 70 & affects around 38% of those over the age of 85.
