Hang in there. These little signs of the effects of age are alarming and are feared to be the onset of losing one’s mind. I do not know anything about dementia. When I forget something I just forget it, I let go, not worry. And do something else. Pretty soon it comes back to me and I smile-got the keys back, found my wallet, his name is John, etc. Like that life shooting from the seemingly dried tree bark it is not all atrophied inside our heads-there is that thing we all know that springs eternal.

@Robert: I do the same. And also get entertained taking pictures of anything that crosses my attention, just take pictures, not on a big journey on purpose. I enjoy it as much as I enjoy washing dishes and taking the trash out.
You’re right all we can do is enjoy the moment, writing or anything your mind is set on doing at the moment. And you smile!
