When did you first notice memory loss in older people in your life?
My grandmother just turned 68 (but could easily pass for 50) and in the last year she keeps repeating things that she doesn't remember she told me. Usually it doesn't occur to her that she's told me but today she told me something that we talked about ALL last week and it's just Tuesday! She did preface it by saying "Maybe I already told you but you know how old people are."
Maybe I'm worrying about nothing but the length of time between telling me things gets shorter and shorter. She also just retired and moved 3 hours away and is living alone. She hangs out with her neighbors and friends regularly but we don't see her as often since she has moved away. I will be the one taking care of her.
