A Comprehensive Look at Cognitive Decline, Part 1


Dr. Andrew Budson is a neurologist and memory researcher whose recent book, "Six Steps to Managing Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia: A Guide for Families" is a comprehensive look at cognitive decline. How do you determine whether you or a loved one is progressing toward dementia or merely suffering ordinary age-related memory decline? Are there tests? Why are we seeing such an uptick in Alzheimer's cases--is it merely because people are living longer, or is it something about lifestyle? What are some of the risk factors for Alzheimer's? If a family member has it, is it inevitable you'll get it? What about brain games? Exercise? Diet? Can stress accelerate memory decline? Dr. Budson shares his views on the controversial new Alzheimer's drug, Aduhelm. Do other drugs really help? What about Prevagen? What commonly-used medications can undermine memory? How to avoid caregiver burnout? Click HERE for part 2.
