Memory and age have been from the beginning of societies two closely related terms.
To talk about forgetfulness, memory failures or difficulty learning new things was, until recently, to talk about old age.
Although these concepts can be related, it is proven how another set of personal and environmental variables, have a specific weight as important or even greater.
Environmental factors such as retirement, decreased cognitive stimulation due to lower environmental demands or lack of habit, the use of tools such as calculator, memory on phones, agendas and clocks with alarm, stress, anxiety and depression Are also very present factors in older people that make difficult a satisfactory memory function.
Through the implementation of strategies and various exercises the attendees will be able to improve their memory capacity, while increasing the levels of self-esteem and self-confidence and reduce the anxiety generated by the perception of memory deficit.
