There is a natural decline in short-term memory as we age, which can be annoying. Among the products that step in when memory falters: Post-it notes, those "pill-minder" boxes with mini-compartments for each day's medications, e-mail and voice mail for self-reminding messages, and keychains that let you make your car chirp to you when you forget exactly where you parked it.

The turnout Wednesday afternoon was nearly four times that at any other health care workshop held at the New Hyde Park facility, according to officials at the institute. Officials estimate some 400,000 senior citizens live in Queens. "Just like the physical signs of aging, such as gray hair and stiff joints, memory loss is a cognitive sign, and that concerns us all," said Dr. Gisele Wolf-Klein, the guest speaker. . . .
Cecile Herman of Bayside said she worries about her memory loss. "Sometimes I can't think of the words when I'm talking. The idea is in my head, but I'm choking on the words." . . .
Evelyn Weinstein, who works with 35 nursing homes in Nassau County, came to the conference for herself and her patients. "I really want to learn what I can for our people," she said. "And I've had a few 'senior moments' myself."
