While the most common cause of medical memory loss in older people is Alzheimer's disease, there are other brain disorders that can also cause slowed or impaired memory in a patient, including:
- Dementia (frontotemporal dementia, Lewy body disease, Parkinson's disease)
- Acquired brain injury
- Traumatic brain injury
- Brain injury rehabilitation
- Adult attention deficit disorder
- Learning disabilities
Early detection of dementia allows the patient to begin therapy designed to slow down the progression of memory and cognitive loss.
