    Living in the Now = Healthy Brain. Alzheimer’s ultimately affects all parts of the brain. However, each person experiences different emotional effects as his or her disease’s progresses, but they have one thing in common: They have been set up through programming during one’s upbringing and have become a way of operating through life. About 44 million people are living with Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia. According to Dr. Dale Bredesen, the key to preventing Alzheimer’s is to look at each person as an individual and determine what lifestyle changes or treatments for conditions that may lead to Alzheimer’s could benefit them by reducing inflammation in the brain and preventing Alzheimer’s from progressing.

    To help people age well, The Alzheimer's Association® partnered with Penn State Extension to provide Healthy Living for Your Brain and Body: Tips from the Latest Research. This workshop covers four areas of lifestyle habits that are associated with healthy aging. Dementia is caused by physical changes in the brain - it is not a normal part of aging. Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia, accounting for more than 70% of dementia cases. Alzheimer's is recognized as a chronic disease and a public health priority, including in Vermont.

      Over 30 years ago, one researcher chose a small group of nuns as subjects for a study on aging and brain deterioration. Through the years, the study has grown to include nearly sisters across the United States and continues to reveal groundbreaking insights into the aging process and Alzheimer’s disease.   It seems hard to believe, but reading may be a great way to prevent Alzheimer’s disease, and perhaps reading to your younger children or grandchildren may give them vital brain health.

In Alzheimer’s disease, as neurons are injured and die throughout the brain, connections between networks of neurons may break down, and many brain regions begin to shrink. By the final stages of Alzheimer’s, this process—called brain atrophy—is widespread, causing significant loss of brain volume.

Alzheimer’s disease is an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills and, eventually, the ability to carry out the simplest tasks. In most people with the disease—those with the late-onset type —symptoms first appear in their mids.

Alzheimer's disease (AD), also referred to simply as Alzheimer's, is a chronic neurodegenerative disease that usually starts slowly and gradually worsens over time.

It is the cause of 60–70% of cases of dementia. The most common early symptom is difficulty in remembering recent events.
