One person out of eight will get Alzheimer’s by the age of 65 – and nearly half by the age of 85. Such shocking statistics drive the need to know all we can about Alzheimer’s, so we can better help our patients, their families, and ours.
Alzheimer’s dementia is a growing concern among the aging Baby Boomers; yet, modern science points the way to reducing the risks through maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
This new continuing education course, Alzheimer’s – Unraveling the Mystery, is based on a publication from the National Institute on Aging, which describes healthy brain functioning during the aging process and then contrasts it to the processes of Alzheimer’s disease.
Full of colorful, detailed diagrams, this educational booklet describes the risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease, effective steps for prevention, strategies for diagnosing and treating Alzheimer’s disease, and the search for new treatments. Strategies for caregivers and reducing caregiver stress are also discussed briefly.
