Everyday memory refers to the operational memory required in daily life. Some patients with dementia shows a dissociation between impairment in everyday memory and deterioration in the score of common test for recent memory. We examined the Alzheimer's disease and other dementia patients whose score of the Everyday Memory Test for Memory Clinic is preserved when compared to their performance in a word recall task. We found that these patients showed significantly better scores on the construction task and orientation task than did the other patients. We conclude that better visuocognitive function and orientation is associated with the preserved everyday memory in these patients.
