Fleeting Memories

Make sure a loved one gets medical treatment if he or she starts suffering from dementia. Symptoms include memory problems, such as difficulty remembering peoples, places and time; difficulty understanding the results of his or her actions; forgetting how to get dressed or how to do other daily tasks; inability to follow instructions; lack of interest in the world around him or her; loss of interest in food; and a tendency to wander away or get lost, according to the American Academy of Family Physicians.
