Everyone forgets things at times. How often have you misplaced your car keys or forgotten the name of a person you just met?
Some degree of memory problems, as well as a modest decline in other thinking skills, is a fairly common part of aging. There's a difference, however, between normal changes in memory and memory loss associated with Alzheimer's disease and related disorders. And some memory problems are the result of treatable conditions.
If you're having memory problems, talk to your doctor to get a diagnosis and appropriate care.
Memory loss and aging Normal age-related memory loss doesn't prevent you from living a full, productive life. For example, you might occasionally forget a person's name, but recall it later in the day. You might misplace your glasses sometimes. Or maybe you need to make lists more often than in the past to remember appointments or tasks. These changes in memory are generally manageable and don't disrupt your ability to work, live independently or maintain a social life. View our products on memory loss by clicking here
Loss of mobility, which is common among older adults, has profound social, psychological, and physical consequences. Without mobility, people can become recluse. Staying at home immobilized can lead to a handful of other issues such as incontinence, urinary infections, or skin infections.
The dangers of immobility and the need for independence created a technological demand in the market. Devices such as canes, walkers, wheelchairs, and scooters can open the door to greater mobility. Assistive technology has also come a long way in making the lives of those with limited mobility easier.
Overall, people who have never suffered from mobility issues may take this ability for granted. To be mobile means being independent. Mobility allows people to live at home, travel outside of the home, and navigate their own life without waiting for the help or transportation of others. Luckily, the need for mobility has led to a variety of high-quality options that make living and moving with disability easier every day.
