Memory Loss & Dementia: Are You At Risk?

We’ve all forgotten where we left our car keys, or the name of an old acquaintance. It’s not uncommon to develop some memory issues as a part of the aging process. But at what point should we be concerned that these “senior moments” are a symptom of something serious, such as dementia?

Host Jonathan Fialkow, M.D., chief population health officer for Baptist Health, welcomed Patricio Espinosa, M.D., chief of neurology at Marcus Neuroscience Institute at Boca Raton Regional Hospital, to the podcast to explore memory disorders and dementia. 

The discussion covered diagnosis, prevention, treatment, and the facts about supplements advertised as helping a person’s memory function.
