Want to Cut Your Dementia Risk? Make These Lifestyle Changes

Age-related dementia is a difficult condition to manage. Alzheimer’s dementia can be even more so. Both rob seniors of their memories and their cognitive functions, although Alzheimer’s often progresses more quickly and, occasionally, strikes earlier.

Nearly 5 million American seniors have Alzheimer's today, and as the Baby Boom generation reaches peak retirement, that number is expected to grow. In fact, by 2025, according to the Alzheimer's Association, over 13 million Americans will be living with the disease.

What Kind of Care Does Your Elderly Loved One Need?

Not all Louisville retirement homes offer the same services, and that can be confusing to seniors and their families who are just beginning to explore their personal care options.

How to Recognize the Signs of Early-Onset Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer’s dementia doesn’t always target people of advanced years. Sometimes, it strikes adults in middle age.

This variant — early-onset Alzheimer’s dementia — accounts for only about 5 percent of all Alzheimer’s cases, and tragically impacts people in their peak earning years.
