I know so many people who are taking care of others who are at risk for, or lost in the depths of, dementia.
Indeed, Alzheimer’s and other types of dementias have reached crisis proportions in this country.
Over time, I’ll continue to write about dementia prevention, but for now I offer you this simple checklist. Use it in your work with others. Use it to change your own future. Some of the items are even showing promise for dementia or cognitive decline reversal (notably: green tea, a special form of magnesium, and memory stirring).
The checklist was developed using a variety of sources, but I tend to lean heavily on findings that come from multiple studies. I also favor sources like the Alzheimer’s Association, Scientific American, Psychology Today, books by renowned brain researchers, and books by renowned psychologists.
While dementia can be a natural part of aging, it needn’t be a foregone conclusion. Use the checklist. Live well. Think well. Love well.
For background information on 3 of the items on the checklist, see this post that discusses green tea, Vitamin D, and exercise.
