Everyone forgets things occasionally, and it’s normal to be a little more forgetful as we age. But how much forgetfulness is too much? In this conversation, Terri Thorton talks with her husband Alan about the noticeable changes in his memory and thinking skills. As Alan’s devoted caregiver, Terri knows there is a lot to understand. She asks him to describe his cognitive decline in his own words.
