Alzheimer Awareness

Your Health:  January is Alzheimer Awareness Month

Alzheimer's is a progressive, disease that destroys nerve cells in the brain. It causes memory loss, impairs judgment and reasoning, and diminishes a person's ability to communicate. Over time, Alzheimer's makes it impossible for those suffering from it to take care of themselves.

While Alzheimer's disease is more common later in life, it is not a normal part of aging.

We still don't know how to prevent or cure Alzheimer's disease. However, there is growing evidence that a healthy lifestyle may help prevent or delay the onset of Alzheimer's. These include:
• staying socially active;
• remaining physically active;
• eating healthy foods such as fruits, vegetables and fish;
• maintaining healthy levels of blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol; and
• remaining mentally active (for example, playing cards and doing crosswords).
