Functional memory loss

My father frequently complaints that he is having hard times to remember a very common thing... he is associated with a very hectic life and some amount of depression and tension also.. Sometimes he cant remember a very common and easy thing such as password name phone no etc.. After sometime he can get back to it.. Why is this happening?? And what is the remedy?? Is there any kind of medication?? Thank you doctor for your help....
