Sorry, what was the question

The BBC has published a list of the signs of dementia, to be used to shop elderly relatives to the NHS over Christmas. Not wishing to reflect on the possibilities for inter-family strife that could flow from a simple game of Snap, the following symptoms seemed remarkably familar.
  • Struggling to remember recent events 
  • Problems following conversations 
  • Forgetting the names of friends or objects 
  • Repeating yourself 
  • Problems with thinking or reasoning
  • Struggling to remember recent events 
  • Repeating yourself 
  • Confusion in familiar places 
Oh, and the BBC had an interesting piece on old people over Christmas... sorry, where was I?
