If you have had the devastating experience of watching or caring for a loved one with dementia, you understand the toll it takes on the person and everyone around them. Often referred to as “the long goodbye,” you slowly lose that vibrant person you once knew as their cognitive abilities decline. For that reason you may want some guidance on everyday habits to reduce your risk for dementia.
June is Alzheimer’s and brain awareness month. If you have had any experience with a loved one who suffered from Alzheimer’s, you understand the devastating toll it takes on everyone connected with that person. Alzheimer’s awareness month gives us the opportunity to instruct those who are unfamiliar with this disease to be able to recognize its symptoms, understand its progression, and then ask for help.
