Ann McCarthy and Jeremy W. Grabbe

It may be important, therefore, for both aging individuals and potential caretakers to have a better understanding of what would be considered to be normal age-related cognitive changes and what would be considered to be changes that might indicate a condition that would need to be evaluated by a medical professional.
