Did you know reducing your risk of Alzheimer’s Disease could be as simple as 1, 2, 3, 4? If you have a parent currently facing or at risk of developing the disease, it can be worrisome. The good news is you do not have to sit around and wait for it to consume them. You can actively work on slowing the progression or even reducing the risk altogether. You just need to help your loved one follow these Alzheimer’s prevention tips. It is also an excellent idea for you to be proactive in reducing the risk for yourself as well!
Making sure aging loved ones stay engaged and active is a crucial part of their happiness. At Franklin Park we firmly believe in providing a warm and delightful environment for our residents, especially those with who are in need of memory care. That is why we offer the Franklin Park® Refreshing Waters© Memory Care. If your loved one has dementia or Alzheimer’s, you know firsthand how even daily activities can be a challenge. Dementia can result in loved ones pulling away from social activities and relationships. To help them stay active and connected, try these activities.
Currently, Alzheimer’s disease is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States. At this very moment 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s, but by 2050 this number could rise as high as 16 million. Because there is no known cure, this number is likely to continue to rise at an astronomical rate. Organizations like the Alzheimer’s Association work diligently to invest in a world without Alzheimer’s by leading research and awareness that encourages people to get involved.
For many people, thinking about aging brings up a nagging fear: Alzheimer's Disease. That fear starts to grow if your spouse starts to act confused or forget things.
