Q. I suffer from depression and feel many times that I cannot remember things. Here's another question that I encounter a lot of times: "I suffer from depression and feel many times that I cannot remember things. Is there a relationship between Depression and Alzheimer disease?"

A. Daphna, I appreciate your taking the time for this question. It is something I worry about and just discussed with my doctor last week. I know that for me, some days are more difficult (kind of cloudy) than others. Some days it seems to take me all day to get my daily reading/prayer/meditation done. But I am no longer in a hurry now that I am retired. My doctor said all I needed was a cup of coffee to get going and that always helps me just fine. Walking for me is also very stimulating. Seems like when I get back from a walk, I get a new persective on things. Thanks again Daphna.

Q. I'm having problem remembering how to operate a computer software. Is learning possible only at a young age? I have been trying to learn a new software program that my kids got me but I keep forgetting how to get it started. Is learning possible only at a young age?

A. This is a common concern among older adults. However the answer is actually- not at all. People can learn throughout their life span. In fact, it is important to continue and learn new skills as we age. Learning new skills, like new games, new dances, and a new language, and playing a musical instrument, help keep our mind sharp longer. With age, we may be slower to pick up new information. However, the ability to learn does not go away unless we are inflicted with dementia. It may require more effort but you can continue to learn.
