Re: Caring for a caregiver

I think apathy is part of the disease and I experience it with my mother. Not wanting to take the test can be a self preservation thing too, it's humiliating to do poorly. Some of the things we've had better luck with include doing new and novel things like going to a museum which is stimulating, I ...

I read Bredesen’s book for her bu...

Re: Vitamins and Teeth Products for 70+ ApoE 3/4"

I recommend a vitamin D with K2 supplement. K2 helps calcium get into your bones and teeth.

Flossing daily is helpful too.

Re: Menopause Hot Flashes May Indicate Higher Risk of Alzheimer’s Disease

Personally, I think it's when hot flashes interrupt sleep it is an issue, ergo lack of good quality sleep not the hot flashes themselves.
