My husband will be referred to the memory clinic as his short memory is so bad - has anyone got any experience of the clinic and what happens there. Thanks
Hi @Maria37 welcome to the forum
It’s been a several years since I attended with my father-in-law, though I only attended reviews. And they were just sit down discussions with the psychiatrist. They do ask a lot of questions to test short term/long term memory.
‘…You will be seen initially by a specialist doctor to gather a history of your memory problems and decide which assessments you may need to complete at future appointments e.g., with an occupational therapist or psychologist who can undertake a range of memory-based assessments with you…’
Hi @Maria37 & welcome to the forum.
When i had my stroke they asked me loads of questions. Things like giving me an address to remember & getting you to repeat it back, listing as many words as can beginning with a particular letter, list as many animals as you can in a certain time frame.
I’ve never actually been to a memory clinic but think they’ll do something similar.
Hope it goes well.
