Patient discussion about Park

Q. Is forgetting where you parked your car a sign of a memory problem? Is forgetting where you parked your car a sign of a memory problem? Should you be concerned and consult your doctor about it?

A. This is a common concern that adults voice. However, I wouldn’t be concerned if it is just that. Forgetting where you parked your car is more a problem of inattention than of memory. Adults compared to the young are less good at Divided Attention. They are not as good at simultaneously thinking about an issue and paying attention to where they parked their car. They tend not to pay attention to where they are parked and not register this information in their mind in the first place. What you do not pay attention to, you cannot expect to remember. The solution is to make a habit of paying attention to where you are parked. Take a good look at the surroundings before you leave the parking lot and then you will notice fewer incidence of the problem.
