A Magazine For Caregivers
A big part of National Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month is education - not only about the warning signs of Alzheimer's disease, but about brain health. Everyone should be thinking about successful aging - teenagers, baby boomers, seniors - everyone.
More and more research studies confirm that certain practical steps can help reduce your risk for intellectual decline as you age. How simple can this be? Run, walk, jump rope - move your muscles with any type of physical exercise. Fill out crossword puzzles, do computerized games. Enjoy any kind of mental stimulation activity. Eat blueberries, walnuts, fish - consume healthy foods. And try yoga, relaxation breathing - manage your stress.
You can read more about prevention in the current issue of care ADvantage: for caregivers of people with Alzheimer's Disease and related illnesses (http://www.afacareadvantage.org/). The special feature section includes a "Top Ten List," "A Baby Boomer's Guide to Memory Problems," and other articles that will lead you on the road to brain health.
