Hi Aeroper,

Welcome to heathcare Magic!
This loss of memory is called anterograde amnesia where you find it difficult to register new memories but old memories remain intact.
Your problem is senile amnesia and is quite common at your age.
You can hardly do anything but you can really prevent the progression by good control of the blood sugar levels and your Blood Pressure.
Wish you a great health!
