How to minimise the frustration of memory loss.

Mild memory loss is very common as people get older.

These strategies can help you make changes to your environment and the way you think, to help you remember.

Most of these are very simple methods, such as making lists, using clocks and calendars, setting up automatic bill payments, and keeping things in the same place every day.

The website also has information on internal techniques you can use to help you remember things, such as rehearsing information, mental retracing, and simply relaxing and doing something else for a while before coming back to what you are trying to remember.
