Preventing Alzheimer's & Other Dementias: Understanding Alzheimer's & Types Of Dementia (6 of 7)

Laurie Owen from Home Instead and Dr. Jane Potter from the University of Nebraska Medical Center discuss how to prevent Alzheimer's disease and other dementias.

Most experts agree that Alzheimer's disease or other dementias likely develop as a result of multiple factors including advancing age and family history. These two things are risk factors we cannot change. But now, research is demonstrating that through healthy lifestyle choices and proper health management, we may be able to reduce our risk of Alzheimer's disease or other dementias.

    My father pasesd away almost a year ago from Alzheimer's, it's a terrible terrible disease, when we first started suspecting something was wrong was when my father started having complications in doing everyday tasks, it was really heartbreaking to find out that he had Alzheimer's, we suffered as much as he did because it's really hard seeing as his illness progressed, to those familys taking care of an Alzheimer's patient I can only say try to always show as much love as you can till the end.
