Behavioral Health Therapist
Meghan has experience in working with people of all ages regarding memory, loneliness, depression, anxiety, chronic health problems and many behavioral related health related issues.
Memory problems are more common than you think and it’s normal to forget things from time to time and to become more forgetful as we age. These slips are aggravating, frustrating, and sometimes worrisome. When they happen more than they should, they can trigger fears of looming dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease.
What are the normal signs of aging? How much forgetfulness is too much? How do we tell when memory lapses are normal forgetfulness, within the scope of normal aging, or a more serious issue?
