How Cincinnati Seniors Can Cut Their Alzheimer’s and Dementia Risk

Most seniors experience some degree of memory loss over the course of aging. But when memory loss is severe — forgetting their children's or grandchildren's names, inability to recall where they live or who the President of the United States is, etc. — their concern naturally turns to new-onset dementia or Alzheimer's.

It's tough to nail down predictions about Alzheimer's risk, because its wide-ranging possible causes aren't yet well-understood.

3 Ways to Age with Purpose

One of the most pressing topics in senior care today is figuring out new ways to help seniors age with purpose.

Seniors who feel like they have a sense of purpose are more likely to have a positive outlook of the future, which is in turn associated with better physical, mental and spiritual health.
