In 1983, President Ronald Reagan designated November National Alzheimer’s disease Awareness Month. Health.com says “Alzheimer's disease, the most common type of dementia, damages parts of the brain involved in memory, intelligence, judgment, language, and behavior. Almost half of people afflicted with Alzheimer's are between 75 and 85, although a rare, inherited form of the disease can affect people in their 40s. While the loss of cognitive ability is irreversible, the rate of disease progression varies by individual.” Alzheimer’s is a disease that affects not just the person afflicted but also everyone around them.
There is no known way to combat this terrible disease. However, exercising regularly, eating healthy, and maintaining a healthy weight may help reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer’s according to a study published in the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry. Staying active in the community and proactively not isolating yourself can help keep your memory strong and healthy. North American Health Care, Inc. is working to raise awareness to help those challenged by Alzheimer’s.
If you are unsure if you or a loved one is one of 5.4 million affected Americans you can read the 25 Signs and Symptoms of Alzheimer’s Disease at health.com. Go purple with a purpose and help raise awareness for Alzheimer’s disease.
