How to “Do Something Grand” This Grandparents Day

Did you know that this year marks the 40th anniversary of National Grandparents Day? It became official with a proclamation by President Carter in 1978, when he encouraged grandchildren to visit with their grandparents and learn from their life wisdom. Observed on the first Sunday after Labor Day, Grandparents Day falls on Sept. 9 this year.

Grandparents Day may not be as widely celebrated as Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, but that’s no reason not to celebrate it in a meaningful way. In fact, there’s now an entire organization, Generations United, that encourages everyone to “do something grand” for Grandparents Day.

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.

According to an NIH-funded study published last year by UCLA researchers, nearly 47 million American adults alive today may be at moderate to severe risk of developing Alzheimer's dementia later in life, based on criteria for a hypothetical "pre-clinical stage" of the disease, in which the disease process has begun, but is not yet manifesting symptoms.

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