June is Alzheimer's and Brain Awareness Month

This month, we are encouraging you to take charge of your brain health! Whatever your age or stage of life, science shows that adopting healthy habits may help reduce the risk of dementia. In fact, as many as 40% of dementia cases may be attributable to modifiable risk factors, such as high blood pressure and lack of physical activity.

 

Learn 10 Healthy Habits for Your Brain that you can adopt today: alz.org/healthyhabits.

Channel 6 Spotlights Dementia Caregiving

Channel 6 News recently aired a segment looking at dementia caregiving. "Unseen heroes: Understanding the emotional toll of Alzheimer's on caregivers in New York" profiled a Rexford couple who have engaged with our chapter's programs and services. They talk about their journey with the disease and why reaching out for help is so beneficial. As our Executive Director said, "So many caregivers, I think roughly 70%, tell us that one of the hardest things for them is navigating the caregiving journey."

 

We're here for you day and night through our 24/7 Helpline - 800.272.3900.

Watch the SegmentLearn How to Keep Your Brain Healthy - Virtual Program Series

To further dive into the importance of brain health, we are hosting a free statewide education healthy brain program series during the month of June. 

 

This virtual five-part series will highlight what research says about how to take care of your brain and your body as you age, as well as the lifestyle changes that can reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia. One of the programs will focus specifically on how men can develop a healthier lifestyle and stay sharp. In another program, we'll hear from New York researchers on the impact of diet, exercise and sleep.


You can sign up for one program or the entire series by calling 800.272.3900.

June is also Pride Month and we know the dynamics of LGBTQ+ caregiving are not often reflected in discussions around caregiving relationships as a whole.

 

On June 11, you’re invited to our free virtual program “LGBTQ+ Caregiving,” to discuss the unique ways LGBTQ+ caregivers can be supported when caring for loved ones.
