This week, I had the opportunity to attend a work shop on dementia by one of America’s leading experts on the topic; Teepa Snow. It was both informative, and funny as she kept our attention the entire six hours. Below, is a clip from her site. She has a great deal of information you can use to improve your care for those with dementia.
According to a new study, “calcium supplements may be associated with an increased risk of dementia in older women who have had a stroke or other signs of cerebrovascular disease. The research is published in the August 17, 2016, online issue of Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.”
This article goes on to explain, that the study was small and does not state that there is a direct link between calcium supplements and dementia, however it does say there may be a link and that more research needs to be completed. For more information, see the article below.
A study has recently shown that memory is improved when you breathe through your nose. Participants in a study were given new information to remember and it was found that when inhaling through the nose, the information was recalled at higher rate. See article below.
