According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 11.7% of Americans over the age of 65 are in the category of experiencing subjective cognitive decline – which is described as “the self-reported experience of worsening or more frequent confusion or memory loss.”
It’s a number that is certainly bound to be higher as not everyone discloses their memory decline, or even realizes it’s happening.
However, it can be the first step towards an eventual diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease or dementia, conditions that affect over six million Americans.
Free Webinar on Cognitive Health
Through July, Prestige Senior Living is focusing on the cognitive health of seniors, and to that end, we have a webinar coming up that will be of particular interest to seniors and their loved ones.
On Friday, July 30 at 10:30 a.m. Pacific Time, we’re hosting a free webinar with Dr. Rob Winningham, an expert on memory and aging. He will share the most recent scientific advances that can inform us on how we can maintain or even improve our memory ability, the holistic, interconnected approach to do so, and the myriad of factors that affect cognition as we age.
The webinar will provide tools and resources to help improve cognitive function.
To register for the free webinar, fill out the form on this page.
