      Are people with poor memories more likely to develop dementia?

      No, its an organic illness and not just losing memory. Dementia is death of parts of the brain and all that means
      Life always gives you a second chance, its called tomorrow

      Poor memory has nothing to do with dementia. It is mainly caused by damages or changes to your brain. A stroke or even a head injury can lead to dementia. I care for my mother who has dementia, she has been diagnosed for over a year now. A good and proper medical care is essential. I used to care for my mother till about a year back and when the dementia progressed I knew that taking care of her on my own would be difficult. She is now living in an assisted living home where she is getting proper medical attention. I call her everyday and visit her during the weekends.
