Background • The literature shows that significant memory decline begins during midlife which is usually defined as the period of life between of 40-65 years of age. • 40 % of middle-aged people report everyday forgetfulness (Ponds, Commissaris, & Jolles, 1997). • More than half of these people perceive their forgetfulness as a hindrance in their daily live. • 70% of individuals in this age-group have expressed worries about their increasing forgetfulness (Commissaris, Ponds, & Jolles, 1998). • Memory interventions though are usually intended for individuals who are older than 65 years of age with mild to moderate memory impairment or for people with recognised neurological conditions such as TBI.
