Slowing Alzheimer’s Down, Elder Law Attorney, Woodstock, GA


While scientists have not yet been able to find a cure for Alzheimer’s disease, they have learned enough about it to suggest some ways that the disease can be prevented or slowed down.

Millions of Americans suffer from the devastating effects of Alzheimer’s disease. Despite efforts to find a cure to end patients’ suffering, medical scientists have not yet been able to find one. There is still much about the disease that is not understood.

However, scientists have learned enough about how the human body and brain work, that they now understand some ways the disease’s progress can be slowed and perhaps even prevented in the first place.

Recently, a neuroscientist offered some helpful tips in Market Watch in “These simple lifestyle changes can prevent or slow Alzheimer’s,” including:

  • Get Regular Exercise – It is believed that regular moderate exercise can help slow the progress of Alzheimer’s. A mere 2.5 hours of weekly exercise as simple as taking regular 15 minute walks can be helpful.
  • Move Frequently – Long periods of time sitting down will cause the body to go into a metabolic rest state that can ultimately be harmful. It is suggested that whether you are at home or the office, you should get up and move around every half hour or so during the day.
  • Mediterranean Diet – Dietary changes can also be helpful. You should consider eating more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and legumes. Replacing butter with olive oil is also a good idea. Finally, it is a good idea to use poultry and fish as your main protein sources more often than beef and pork.

“On the threshold of retirement, we finally decided to quit thinking we could self-prepare the requisite documents. We had previously had only a very simple will. We needed the necessary legal (including updated will) & health care docs but didn’t want to deal with the time & complication of legalese. Cindy made the process relatively painless. She took the time to explain and answer questions without trying to upsell services. We were done in 2 meetings plus the reading of emailed drafts. In addition to preparing the documents, Nelson Eldercare will be there when our adult children need advice on executing the plans we’ve put in place.So glad it’s behind us and would recommend Cindy and her helpful staff.”

Cindy and her company treat their clients like family. Nelson’s offers clear, direct, and honest guidance in planning for your families security and future. No one wants to actively sit down and make these decisions, but Nelson’s makes this process seamless. I was so impressed with their willingness to answer all questions big or small. So glad I made the decision have them help my mom and dad and now me. You can’t go wrong with Nelson’s Elder Care Law.
