Graham Beaton.  Alzheimer’s: What to remember

Graham Beaton’s lecture summary

Memory challenges, cognitive dementia and Alzheimer’s disease are common problems amongst the elderly.  These conditions can impact memory, language, reasoning and judgement.  While there are many factors that contribute to the development of cognitive decline in the elderly, there are several steps that can be taken to reduce the risk of developing these conditions, and to reduce their impact on memory and mental functioning. My presentation will examine the contributing factors and steps that can be taken to mitigate their effects.
