Oct. 20 – Boost Your Brain Health
Some changes, like needing bifocals to read the newspaper, are perfectly normal as our eyes age. And as
our brains age, it’s normal to briefly forget the day of the week or struggle a bit to find the right word. For
some people, changes in their brain’s ability to function as it used to may signal the onset of a dementia related illness such as Alzheimer’s disease. Learn what lifestyle choices can lower our risk of dementia and common contributing factors to dementia, including Alzheimer’s.
