June is Alzheimer's Awareness Month

Alzheimer’s is a degenerative brain disease that is caused by complex brain changes following cell damage. It leads to dementia symptoms that gradually worsen over time. The most common early symptom of Alzheimer’s is trouble remembering new information because the disease typically impacts the part of the brain associated with learning first. As Alzheimer’s advances, symptoms get more severe and include disorientation, confusion and behavior changes. Eventually, speaking, swallowing and walking become difficult.

Dementia is a general term for a decline in mental ability severe enough to interfere with daily life, while Alzheimer's is a specific disease. Alzheimer’s is the most common cause of dementia.

From the Alzheimer's Association, If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's or another dementia, you are not alone. The Alzheimer's Association is the trusted resource for reliable information, education, referral and support to millions of people affected by the disease.

May is Older Americans Month. Let's celebrate the wide range of aging experiences and promote independence and fulfillment as we age.

Stress is a part of normal day-to-day living. It's usually a result of changes that occur in life. Some of them can be major events like a divorce or loss. Some of them can be relatively minor such as a change in schedule or getting caught in traffic. And, while each of us has a different reaction to stress in general, there are certain things we can each do to help cope. It may even force you to rethink handling stressful situations in new ways.
