TORONTO - When Marcel Wieder's aunt was diagnosed with early onset dementia several years ago, the Toronto resident started to worry about his own brain health.
"It hit close to home," said the 52-year-old public affairs consultant.
"Generally, I think I have a pretty good memory. But I'm over 50 and there are lapses at times. I want to make sure that everything's firing on all cylinders."
In the past few years, Wieder has noticed his memory slipping a little. Friends' phone numbers, once readily at hand, have become tougher to recall.
