Alzheimer's / Dementia

Symptoms / Diagnosis



From Esther Heerema, your Guide to Alzheimer's / Dementia
This week's newsletter contains information about a new invention, as well as the latest research connecting an active brain in our youth to a healthy mind in later years. I'd also like to encourage you to take the opportunity to comment on the National Alzheimer's Plan. The Department of Health and Human Services is accepting feedback on this plan until February 8, 2012, so there's still time. Even if your comment is an echo of what is already posted, the government needs to hear your thoughts and also get an idea of how many other people feel the same way. Please consider this as a simple way to get involved in the fight against Alzheimer's. Thank you!
