In brief: Not so.
About 50% of the elderly never develop dementia, but our intellectual faculties do slow as we get older. It may take a bit longer to recall facts, but short term memory loss is not a normal feature of aging.
Lack of sleep, emotional stress, and poor nutrition can hurt focus and concentration.
