My mother, age 87, is experiencing some forgetfulness. Is some forgetfulness/confusion normal at this age or is it a concern?
Heidi in Virginia, 59
As we age, we all have moments of forgetfulness. When the forgetfulness is frequent, it’s best to discuss it with your mother. Express your concern and tell her how this impacts you as well, then bring your mother to her primary doctor for a through examination. Her doctor will test for underlying medical problems. Also request that the doctor test both her long term and short term memory.
