Why I asked was because I noticed this with my Mom who was in her late 90's, and another writer's Mom, also in her late 90's, both were doing quite well for their age but both had a serious fall where there was head trauma. Within days dementia showed up in the late stages.
With my Dad, any time he fell, be it not serious, it seemed like the memory got a bit worse with each fall.
Also age plays a part as our body parts tend to break down, such as our eye sight, hearing, etc. Both my Mom and her sister, both of whom were in their late 90's, seem to have the same age related issues.... almost blind, very hard of hearing, and serious memory issues. My Mom other sister who was in her late 80's, didn't have any of those issues.
The answer to both is maybe, depending on the type of dementia or cause of vision loss.
