It's Alzheimer's & Brain Awareness Month and we're so excited to get our neurons firing! It's time to flex our mental muscles and remember that every little bit of knowledge we can retain helps us gain more brain power!

What is Alzheimer's?

  • Alzheimer's is a progressive, degenerative disorder that attacks the brain's nerve cells, or neurons, resulting in loss of memory, thinking and language skills, and behavioral changes.

  • It is the most common cause of dementia, affecting an estimated 5.7 million Americans

Brain health is essential to maintaining overall health and well-being. It helps to keep our minds sharp, increase focus and concentration, and improve memory.

Factors that can help to promote brain health

  • engaging in physical activity

  • eating a nutritious diet

  • getting adequate sleep

  • staying socially connected

  • managing stress

  • playing games

  • learning a new language

The key to brain health is to keep your neurons firing – don't let Alzheimer's put a damper on your memories!
