Many people joke about the forgetfulness that comes with age, but the laughing stops when absent-mindedness is diagnosed as dementia. According to Dementia Care Central, an online resource for dementia caregivers, the site estimated 5.4 million people in the U.S. have Alzheimer’s. That may be a shocking number, but keep in mind that Alzheimer’s disease is only one form of dementia. Finding ways to avoid memory issues as you age is important to everyone, but especially vital to those who have a family member who has been diagnosed with dementia. The good news is that researchers are continually discovering methods and techniques that improve, delay or even prevent dementia from occurring. One interesting line of attack against the debilitating disease is continuing your education. You may have been relieved when you finally graduated and moved on to the real world, but remaining a lifelong student will decrease your chances of battling devastating memory issues.
