One thought on “Prioritizing Brain Health as a Caregiver

  • Susie Bickley

    I am almost 62 years old. My mother developed Alzheimer’s in her mid 70’s. Is it too late for me to delay/prevent it in myself? I walk a couple times/wk, sleep 6 hours/night, play chimes, make baskets, plant/tend a large garden, work part time (24-26 hours/wk), walk around my yard or through the fields, listen to music, pray (a lot), and try to use humor every day. I can improve my diet and exercise more. I want to revitalize reading books instead of playing word games on my phone.
