Baby Boomer Generation Fears Dementia, Alzheimer’s and Memory Loss
"The words dementia, Alzheimer’s and memory loss instills fear of aging in the retiring baby boomer generation. Scientific research now shows that the causes of memory loss can be prevented or delayed. The studies also confirm that memory loss is not a normal process of aging."
As the baby boomer generation ages, we may experience a longer period of time to recall something in our memory bank. Forgetting where we placed something, not being able to recall events or incidents that were not significant to us at the time are normal processes of memory. We become distracted, multitask and do not give significance to what we are doing. In our present day culture, we are bombarded by TV, radio, cell phones and computers. We communicate in so many different fashions and do it while we are driving; cooking, eating and even when we are sleeping (we leave the TV on or listen to music).
