Some common signs that dementia may be affecting a loved one can include:
- Memory loss
- Confusion about time or place
- Difficulty concentrating
- Struggling to carry out familiar daily tasks
Psychiatrist Dr. Domenick Sportelli notes some of these issues will affect all of us from time to time, but when someone is dealing with dementia, they usually have trouble getting through their day in a normal fashion due to these issues.
To keep your brain healthy, The Doctors say we must remember that "heart health is brain health." They say everything that helps your heart stay healthy -- diet, nutrition, and regular exercise -- both physically and mentally -- will also benefit the brain.
The Doctors note you are never too old to learn something new, like a new hobby, sport, exercise, or pastime -- all of which can help with brain health. They also stress the importance of working on your balance and coordination skills and suggest daily stretching or yoga as a way to keep your heart and brain in top shape.
