Hi seema;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
There may be some age related changes in brain like atrophic changes or mental stress that can cause loss of memory .So at age of 62 with hypertension it can happen.Please get the patient to examine by a neurophysician to find the cause of short term memory loss if require get investigated.Once the cause is known the treatment will be easier to do so please consult a doctor.
