Advancements in how to live with Alzheimer’s

Living with Alzheimer’s disease requires learning new skills, creating new habits, and establishing your own personal care and support team. Studies consistently demonstrate that people living with Alzheimer’s disease (and those who support them) who receive ongoing support, education, and care from trained Alzheimer’s disease professionals have improved quality of life and are more likely to avoid visits to the emergency department and hospital.

Modifiable risk factors

Growing evidence suggests that modifiable risk factors may delay Alzheimer’s disease by as much as 40% 1. Our PathFinders will help you find ways to support changes to improve your overall health and well-being. Below are the most common modifiable factors important for brain health:

Get moving: Aim for at least 1-2 hours of exercise each week

Watch your numbers: Keep weight, blood pressure, and blood sugar at optimal levels

Consume a healthy diet: Eat the color of the rainbow every day

Rest well and manage stress: Get 7-9 hours of sleep each night

Stay active mentally: Keep the brain sharp by learning new (and fun!) skills

Stay socially active: Social connections are imperative for brain health

Living well with Alzheimer’s disease

An Alzheimer’s disease diagnosis is not the end. Advances in science and care are transforming the way in which we diagnose, treat, and manage this disease, similar to many other chronics conditions. With the proper care and support, it is possible to live a full, vibrant life.
