As people get older, they begin to worry that any type of memory lapse may be the onset of dementia. In fact, the American Psychology Association agrees that dementia is one of the most feared aspects of getting older. It may be important, therefore, for both aging individuals and potential caretakers to have a better understanding of what would be considered to be normal age-related cognitive changes and what would be considered to be changes that might indicate a condition that would need to be evaluated by a medical professional.
