whereas there are many other less severe possibilities.
Some level of memory decline is normal with aging,
and even a slight loss of acuity may be noticed in the 30's and 40's.

For example, depression and depressive disorders can cause a person to
have reduced concentration and thereby poorer memory retention.

that the elderly patient may be taking.
There are also various other possible causes of dementia.
