June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month! Join us in raising awareness about Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias while promoting brain health. Together, we can make a difference in the fight against this devastating disease.

Did you know? Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia, affecting over 6 million Americans. It’s a progressive disease that impacts memory, thinking, and behavior. Early detection is important!

Early signs of Alzheimer’s include memory loss that disrupts daily life, challenges in planning or solving problems, confusion with time or place, and changes in mood or personality. If you notice these signs in a loved one, consult a healthcare professional.

Risk factors for Alzheimer’s include age, family history, and genetics. While these are factors we cannot change, lifestyle choices like a healthy diet, regular exercise, and mental stimulation can support brain health.

Caregivers need support, too! Taking care of someone with dementia can be challenging. Remember to take care of yourself, seek support groups, and ask for help when needed. Click here to see resources available through LifeStream’s STEP In Caregiver Programs, including Monthly Caregiver Gatherings, Memory Cafés, resource binders, and more!

Boost your brain health by staying physically active, eating a balanced diet, getting enough sleep, staying socially engaged, and challenging your mind with puzzles and learning new skills. Your brain will thank you! Click here to find a wellness class that works for you!

Get involved in the fight against Alzheimer’s! Participate in local events, volunteer, donate, or advocate for policies that support Alzheimer’s research. Look into your local Alzheimer’s Association chapter!

Share your story. Have you or a loved one been affected by Alzheimer’s? Sharing personal experiences can provide support and raise awareness. LifeStream’s Monthly Caregiver Gatherings are a great opportunity to share your story and find community.

There is hope! Researchers are working tirelessly to find treatments and a cure for Alzheimer’s. Stay informed about the latest advancements and support research efforts.

LifeStream is committed to empowering older adults to live independently and actively participate in their communities by offering nutrition and wellness programs, transportation services, and caregiver support. By shining a spotlight on dementia and brain health, we can educate our communities, advocate for necessary resources, and support caregivers and individuals living with dementia. Awareness leads to early detection, better care, and increased funding for research. Join us in spreading knowledge and offering support. Together, we can make a meaningful difference in the lives of those we serve.
