What Are Things That Can Cause the APPEARANCE of mental decline in older people?


Even people who are young can come across as absent-minded, distracted, forgetful when they're under stress, living with distress/discomfort, or feeling pressured or misunderstood by even well meaning others. They may not say anything because they know someone means well. OR, they may live with it so often that they then become irritable. If they're the parent of grown kids someone who isn't a parent, or one of grown kids may not even realize what the concerns/issues are once kids are grown. AND, how might being misunderstood make things worse?

    That was a really interesting tack cissy

    I too know of a 101 year old woman. She plays the card game Bridge! and does relatively well. I still can't believe it. My 94yr old relative still caretakes the village church/cemetry-all good!
