There currently is no cure for Alzheimer’s Disease, so treatment of symptoms and memory activities are important.
Richmond, VA (PRWEB) August 30, 2014
Seniors Guide, the comprehensive guide to all things senior, has published several articles recently that focus on Alzheimer’s Disease, Dementia, and Memory Loss.
Country singer Glen Campbell, who recently revealed to the public of being diagnosed with the Alzheimer’s, inspired Seniors Guide writers to review the trailer for his latest movie, “I’ll Be Me”. The movie, out on October 24, 2014, shows a glimpse of Glen Campbell’s life while focusing on his diagnosis of the disease – which inspires a final tour from the musician while he still has his health.
Another new article, written by Seniors Guide home care expert Janet Faraone, raises important concerns with the issue, “Should Dementia and Alzheimer’s Patients Keep Their Guns?”
Profiled in the article is a 78-year-old who had been diagnosed with dementia, living at home alone. An avid gun collector, his hobby turns into a deadly situation due to his mental health impaired by his dementia.
“We’ve read that identifying risk factors in the home with loved ones upon diagnosis can improve safety,” says Katharine Ross, Vice President of Seniors Guide Magazine and SeniorsGuideOnline.com.
Another growing area of the treatment of Alzheimer’s and other memory related disorders are activities. By keeping the brain and body active, patients with cognitive impairments have shown to keep the brain sharper longer.
“There currently is no cure for Alzheimer’s Disease, so treatment of symptoms and memory activities are important”, says Ross.
