Memory problems in old age: when is this abnormal?

We associate growing old with becoming absent-minded, and our mental abilities do in fact fade as we grow old. However, this does not mean that we forget who our relatives are, or where we live,
or other important facts. The memory loss of dementia is much more severe than in normal ageing. Thus, the person with dementia will not remember what he did the previous day, or the names of close relatives, or the address of his own home. As the disease gets worse, he may forget the day or time, what he has just said (so that he says the same thing again and again) or even who his wife or son is.
