She recently turned 84. She received a lot of birthday cards , but couldn't remember who some of theses people are now. She received cards from these same people for Christmas last year and knew all of them. She cannot remember how to turn on the tv and constantly winds the clock daily even though is is a 35 day clock. I assume this is a natural part of aging, but it seems as though it has really progressed in the last two months. A lot of her friends and our relatives have died recently. Could this be causing her memory loss to progress. Whenever we have appointments I have to constantly remind her over and over as if she forgot what we are talking about. She complains about health issues and I make dr appointments, but when we see the doctor she tells him she us fine. Will it get worse? What symptoms should I be watching for? Any suggestions? She constantly waters her plants until they are drowning and water is everywhere.
