Georgetown, TX (PRWEB) September 6, 2006
November is National Alzheimer's Disease Month, so ALZ-HELP.org has developed a free on-line test, taken in the privacy of your own home, which has been specifically created with questions designed to indicate your risk factors and possible early warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease. This tool was created to help you and your health care provider become more aware of early symptoms that could indicate future problems.
Medical research statistics indicate that the older we get, the higher the odds become of getting Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia in older adults and this progressive deteriorating brain disorder results in gradual memory loss, personality changes, unusual behavior, and a decline in thinking abilities. It currently affects over 4-5 million Americans and many millions more worldwide. The current baby boomer generation is quickly approaching the age of greater risk for Alzheimer’s and as many younger people reach their 50’s and 60’s, they may develop early onset Alzheimer’s.
This simple test is completely private and is not recorded by Alz-Help or anyone else. Share the results with your health care specialist. For best results, retake this free test every few months and compare your progressive scores.
Although a cure for Alzheimer’s has not yet been developed, active mental exercises, like crossword puzzles, Sudoku and other activities, as well as a healthy diet, have been known to help delay its onset.
