GRAND JUNCTION,Colo. On Wednesday, a medical specialist spoke in Grand Junction to help people prepare and prolong serious diseases like Alzheimer’s and Dementia.
The Recruiting Seniors for Volunteer Positions hosted a seminar with an Alzheimer’s regional coordinator.
The seminar gave the latest and accurate information about the memory loss conditions.
Officials says the best thing to do now, is to live a healthy life style, by eating right, and being socially active. Officials say these choices might decrease the severity of the conditions.
"We find that people who are life long learners and have a wide social network and are getting out of the house doing fun things. They have stronger brains and in the long run that means there's more brain to break down if the disease does hit them in the end,” said Alzheimer's Regional Director Teresa Black.
Officials say doctors are still using stem cell research and other methods to treat dementia and Alzheimer’s and find a cure.
