Where Are My Glasses?!

image1

Have you ever walked into a room and forgotten why you were there? Spent twenty minutes looking for your reading glasses, only to find them on the top of your head? Or have you started making lists so that you can remember things? Have you stared at the bottle of pills and not remembered if you already took them? Are you realizing that someone you are caring for appears to be slipping and may need a higher level of care than you are able to provide? Are you worried because you have a family history of dementia? Does that make you afraid every time you lose your keys? 

Why You Need To Read This Book

Your brain is aging—that’s a reality. When the topic of brain health is raised among middle-aged and older adults, a flurry of questions tends to follow: What is normal brain aging? When do changes that seem to be age related become cause for concern? Are there early warning signs of cognitive impairment? Am I at risk for cognitive impairment? Am I exhibiting deficits that go beyond normal brain aging? If so, is there anything I can do to reverse them or slow the rate of decline? Is there anything I can do to maintain my brain health as I age?
