Start DateAugust 11, 2005
RoseCrest Retirement Community will host Joyce Finkle, coordinator of Spartanburg area office, Alzheimer?s Association, for Maintain Your Brain on Thursday, August 11th from 10:00 AM until 1:00 PM at RoseCrest Retirement Community in Inman. The one and one-half hour free Maintain Your Brain? workshop is beneficial for baby boomers and others who are currently healthy and have a desire to learn what they can do to potentially help reduce the likelihood of developing Alzheimer?s disease. A complimentary lunch will be served afterwards for all workshop participants.
The Alzheimer's Association's Maintain Your Brain? consumer education campaign encourages Americans ? especially the nation's 77 million baby boomers ? to keep their brains healthy to potentially limit their risk of developing Alzheimer's disease. Increasing evidence shows that healthy lifestyle habits ? such as remaining socially involved, staying physically and mentally active, and adopting a brain-healthy diet ? contribute to healthier aging and may also decrease one's risk for Alzheimer's. Like other parts of the body, the brain may lose some agility as persons get older. It can deteriorate even more if persons are unaware of the need to care for their brain. Science is unlocking many of the mysteries of the brain, but have not yet discovered all of the answers. Seniors can do everything ?right? and still not prevent Alzheimer?s disease. While the Alzheimer's Association?s Maintain Your Brain? consumer education campaign does not guarantee individual health outcome, it offers the most up-to-date information available so that seniors can make informed decisions about their health.
