Memory problems can impact daily functioning and hinder independence when left undiagnosed.

At Dementech Neurosciences, our team of specialist neurologists help patients realise their full cognitive potential by using advanced healthcare solutions to diagnose and treat working memory problems.

What Is a Private Memory Clinic?

A private memory clinic is a clinic that specialises in providing expert-led memory assessments, imaging and diagnostic techniques to help treat a wide variety of memory-related conditions.

Through the expertise of a team of highly qualified neurologists, psychologists and occupational therapists, private memory clinics offer comprehensive care to patients, tailored to suit each individual’s needs and requirements.

Dementech Neurosciences is a leading private memory clinic in London.

Do I Have a Memory Problem?

Memory lapses like occasional forgetfulness or misplaced items, are all part of human nature and, on their own, don’t necessarily indicate a significant memory problem.

This is because factors such as inattention, information overload or mild depression can all temporarily impair our memory function.

It's only when these memory lapses start to noticeably interfere with your daily life that it may be worth seeing a specialist.

Which neurological conditions are related to memory problems?

While it’s common to experience mild memory loss with age, there are several factors, circumstances and medical conditions that can exacerbate memory issues.

Certain neurological conditions are related to memory problems. These conditions may all manifest differently from one another, but they are all often associated with memory loss.

Some of the main examples include:

  • Alzheimer’s disease: The most common cause of dementia, Alzheimer’s disease causes a gradual deterioration of brain cells which, over time, can lead to memory loss, cognitive decline and altered behaviour.
  • Lewy body dementia:  Lewy body dementia is a progressive condition associated with the build-up of abnormal protein deposits in the brain, causing reduced cognitive ability, visual hallucinations and movement disorders.
  • Vascular dementia: another common form of dementia, vascular dementia is caused by problems with the supply of blood to the brain and can be brought on after having a stroke. 
  • Frontotemporal dementia: this neurodegenerative disorder is characterised by progressive damage to the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain, leading to changes in behaviour, personality and language abilities.
  • Parkinson’s disease dementia: this refers to cognitive decline and memory problems that occur as a complication of Parkinson’s disease, a progressive neurological disorder which primarily affects movement.
  • Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI): patients with MCI do not meet the criteria for dementia but may experience a noticeable cognitive decline beyond what is expected for their age, leading to impaired thinking, memory or judgment.

Other progressive neurodegenerative diseases, like Huntington’s disease and multiple sclerosis, and mental health disorders, like post-traumatic stress disorder, can also impact your memory.

At Dementech Neurosciences, our team can assess and diagnose all these conditions and more, helping develop personalised treatment plans to specifically combat the cause of your memory-related symptoms.

Recognising the symptoms of memory problems

Memory symptoms can significantly impact your ability to perform day-to-day tasks and impact your overall quality of life. They can also appear in different ways, including:


Forgetting recent events, appointments or important details on a regular basis.

Difficulties while learning

Struggling to acquire new information or skills, despite repeated efforts.


Feeling disoriented or getting lost in familiar surroundings, leading to anxiety or frustration.

Language-related issues

Difficulty finding words, expressing thoughts coherently or being able to keep up with conversations.

Impaired Judgement

Making poor decisions or exhibiting impaired reasoning skills in everyday situations.

Misplacing Items

Frequently losing or misplacing your belongings in unusual locations and having difficulty retracing your steps to find them again.

Mood & Personality Changes

Displaying different types of moods – from increased irritability to depression – often without any apparent cause.

Social withdrawal

Choosing to avoid social interactions and becoming less engaged in hobbies or activities once enjoyed, due to memory-related challenges.

It's important to note that these symptoms may indicate that there is an underlying condition affecting memory and cognition. Getting a comprehensive assessment with a qualified neurology specialist will help determine the cause and establish the next steps.
