I can really relate to your confusion and feeling like an idiot. I too, feel this way very often and most times, I have just learned to laugh at it, but deep down inside, sometimes I feel like an invalid, depending on others, for instance, to drive me places.
I too, used to run a big home health agency and was under the gun and on the ball. I had to be. Now, I can't even believe I did all that during my working years. Sometimes, I feel so foolish, girl. I know how you feel, believe me.
I forget people's names and it is so embarrassing for me. I went to my seven year old's birthday party this weekend and I ended up talking to her babysitter who used to be over nearly every day and I had to ask her what her name was. I was embarrassed and she was shocked.
Oh well, we just do the best that we can. But please know that you are not alone.

And by all means, when you are down, ask me for help. I will be there.
