  1. Great video! I am sharing. I was a caregiver to a friend who passed away in April 2014. She would have been a perfect poster child for this video. People need to pay attention to their weight, exercise and brain health! Diabetes caused by obesity leads to all of these problems. Thanks for posting the video!

    1. Stopping to smoke helps prevent lung cancer. But... some non-smokers still get lung cancer, while some smokers still live long, healthy lives. Yet everyone agrees that not smoking lowers the risk of lung cancer. Similarly, while there is no "silver-bullet" to knock out Alzheimer's, there is clear, scientific guidance on things to do lower our risk. We're just trying to get that information out there in a way that is accurate and easy-to-learn. Hope this helps.

He was in an out of nursing homes 5.and in rehabilitation 2017, because he got a flesh eating bacterial infection wound in groin left side, had to have emergency surgery, too ,2 days in a row. To make sure it was all out. How he got it i don't know. But he would get agitated, violent too. Paranoid, we were married 51 years. Together 54years, at times he would ask for a divorce 😒 we were high school sweethearts since age of 16. He had short term memory loss πŸ˜• not one dr.told me what to expect 😠 on his behaviors, or violence, he hated evening, ,Sundowning it was called. Iam so mad that i wasn't told what to expect 😠. He refused drs office visits ,only had weekly nurse. Once a month home physician. Refused all meds in the end and insulin too. He lodt faith in the drs. Since nursing homes. Why does this happen? Please I need answers. I hope he still loved me😒. Was it normal to act that way, from vascular dementia?
