Elderversity: Preventing Alzheimer’s, dementia
Alzheimer’s has been compared to a tsunami bearing down on our health care system.
Estimates report more than 75,000 Oklahomans suffer from Alzheimer’s or dementia today and the number continues to grow.
Mark Brennaman with Elderversity stopped by the station to talk about this debilitating disease.
He said there is no cure for Alzheimer’s but there are some habits we can all practice that could help prevent or delay the onset of Alzheimer’s or dementia.
He said the bottom line is stay as healthy as possible.
Also, preventing other diseases is key; diseases like diabetes, stroke and heart attacks.
Elderversity is offering its first public class on Alzheimer’s prevention.
