What other signs and symptoms are associated with this symptom?

Many people with progressive memory loss may not be aware of their worsening forgetfulness. Their family members or friends may be more able to judge whether their memory lapses are getting worse. Depending on whether the memory loss involves short-term or long-term memory, the individual or family may notice certain events, such as:

  • inability to recognize family members
  • forgetting one's phone number or home address
  • forgetting how to return home from a familiar location
  • forgetting to eat, bathe, or maintain one's hygiene
  • forgetting friends' or family members' names
