The MIND Diet: Reducing Your Risk of Dementia

Dr. Karen Bryla McNees, UK Health & Wellness 

You may think that there is little that can be done to slow down the progression of Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias, but eating a heart-healthy diet benefits both your body and your brain. The MIND Diet–which is short for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay–is a hybrid of two balanced, heart-healthy diets that have promising potential to reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and the decline in brain health that often occurs as people get older. With simple nutrition and lifestyle changes, you can reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias. Please join us! 

How to Implement Your Legal, Financial and Health Care Goals

Mary Patton, Bluegrass Elder Law

The time for planning our future legal, financial and health care decisions is now. We all want to make sure our wishes regarding our finances, healthcare, long-term care and end-of-life care will be honored. Legal planning is not a service for only the wealthy; everyone needs to have their long-term care goals known. Completing the necessary legal forms ensures us they will. Please join us as Mary explains why legal planning can make a critical difference in our own lives as we age or in the life of someone we are caring for.

Understanding and Responding to Dementia-Related Behaviors

April Stauffer, Alzheimer’s Association

Behavior is a powerful form of communication, and it is one of the primary ways for people with dementia to communicate their needs and feelings as the ability to use language is lost. However, some behaviors can present real challenges for caregivers to manage. Join us to learn how to decode behavioral messages, identify common behavior triggers and learn strategies to help intervene with some of the most common behavioral challenges of Alzheimer’s disease.
