Support for people with memory loss

by Group Office on 28 November, 2022

As we get older many of us will start to worry about our memory.

We may be concerned that it takes us longer to learn new things, or we may forget things sometimes, like paying a bill.

It is normal to forget things once in a while, but serious memory problems make it hard to do everyday things like driving, using the phone, and finding your way home.

If you are worried about memory loss you should talk to your doctor, especially if you or your loved ones are:

  • Asking the same questions over and over again.
  • Getting lost in places a person knows well.
  • Having trouble following recipes or directions.
  • Becoming more confused about time, people and places.
  • Not taking care of oneself – eating poorly, not bathing, or behaving unsafely.

Durham County Council’s Dementia Advisor Service offers support, advice and information to people living with dementia/memory loss. You do not need a diagnosis of dementia to access this support.
