Have you ever gone into a room and forgotten why you went there? Have you ever misplaced your keys, glasses or cell phone? Have you ever forgotten what you were just about to say?
If your answer is “yes” to any of these questions, know you are not alone. Memory does change as we age, but forgetfulness is common for people at all stages of life.
“Hold That Thought: Brain Health” is a University of Illinois Extension educational program that will cover how researchers are examining the memory process and how findings contribute to brain health. The program also will cover strategies for helping with everyday forgetfulness, at any age.
This free seminar is provided in cooperation with the Association for Home and Community Education and will be led by Extension educators via webinar from 10 to 11 a.m. Friday, Sept. 15, at the local Extension office, 7775B Illinois Route 47 in Yorkville.
