The Truth about Brain Disease: Knowledge is Power

The topic of brain disease isn’t fun or sexy, but it is on the minds of people everywhere. As human beings, we love the fact that we are in control of our lives, so the idea of developing a disease of the brain can be terrifying. It’s also very confusing. There are many types of brain diseases such as dementia, including Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson's, Multiple Sclerosis (MS) to name a few, so the information can be difficult to digest.

At this month’s seminar we literally had the chance to “pick the brains” of experts in aging, neuro-science, and memory-care as they shared the in’s and out’s of diagnosing, managing, and living with brain disease.

• Will we lose our memory as we age?

• Do thinking and reasoning eventually slow down?

• What are the signs of a healthy or unhealthy brain?

• Is there anything I can do to avoid having dementia or other brain diseases?

These are only a few of the questions that were addressed at the seminar on brain health and the aging brain. The goal of this month’s seminar was to debunk many of the longstanding myths associated with age related changes, getting older, and brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s.
