Senior with dementia or Alzheimers is comforted by caring female doctor In recognition of Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, we would like to share 3 ways in which you can slow down the progression of Alzheimer’s disease

Alzheimer’s is a degenerative brain disease that leads to memory loss, impaired thinking, and death. It is the most common form of dementia and affects over 5 million Americans. 

Despite no known cure for Alzheimer’s, it can slow its progression. These include exercise, a healthy diet, and mental stimulation. 

So, this Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, commit yourself or a loved one to do what you can to slow down the progression of this disease.

What’s Alzheimer’s Awareness Month?

Alzheimer’s Awareness Month is an annual event that takes place in September. It is a time to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s disease and provide information about its effects. Alzheimer’s Awareness Month also provides an opportunity to support those living with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers.

During Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, various events and activities raise awareness about the disease. These events include walks, runs, and other fundraisers. 

There are also informational sessions about Alzheimer’s disease and its effects and workshops for caregivers. All of this help raise awareness about the disease and its impact on those affected.


Exercise is one of the best ways to keep your brain healthy and prevent Alzheimer’s. It helps increase blood flow to the brain, which promotes the growth of new brain cells and connections. It also helps reduce inflammation and protects from damaging toxins. 

Eat a Healthy Diet

Eating a healthy diet is essential for overall health, but it may also help reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s. Foods that are good for the heart are also good for the brain. These include fruits, vegetables, whole grains, fish, and olive oil. 

Stimulate Your Mind

Mental stimulation can help keep your brain active and delay the onset of Alzheimer’s. Activities that are good for your mind include reading, doing puzzles, playing games, and learning new skills.
