attention span vs memory

hello
after the stroke :
how can you tell when the issue presented is a memory issue and not one of attention:

It is challenging because the two are so closely related

-but what we are seeing is about ten seconds into being asked to do something
-he is looking at something else-anything else in the room and is off task
However he seems to have a look that he has forgotten what he is doing and has to be set on task again-and told what he needs to do

so how is that split to help determine which issue it is ?

thanks
