Lowering the Risk of Memory Loss and Dementia
November 19, 2021 @ 1:30 PM - 2:30 PMFree
The Woman’s Club of Larchmont Inc. will present Dr. Jason Cohen who will discuss proven strategies which can lower the odds of developing memory loss. Learn how a healthful diet, such as a Mediterranean diet or other diets with more fruit, vegetables, and fish, may protect the brain. Mental and physical activities are other strategies. Both can help memory and mood. And while there is no magic activity, Dr. Cohen advocates that anything that gets the heart pumping or the mind working is good. The important thing is to be active regularly and enjoy yourself.
He will also share why taking good care of your health can protect against memory loss and how controlling high blood pressure, diabetes, and cholesterol all lower the chances of brain disease. Reducing or quitting smoking drastically lowers the chance of brain disease. Stress, in particular the long-term stress of caring for someone with dementia, increases the chance of developing brain problems later. Support groups or other stress mitigation strategies lower this risk. Dr. Cohen says it is never too late to improve your odds. Your brain will thank you.
Dr. Jason Cohen is an Assistant Professor of Neurology at Montefiore Medical Center and the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx, NY. He is based at Montefiore’s multidisciplinary Center for the Aging Brain, where he is part of a team.
