When you think about dementia, you probably think of dementia with Alzheimer’s, a disease that affects the brain, the motor system and memory.
But when you think of Alzheimer’s Disease, you might also think of people who have it.
You might also see the word dementia in a different context, like, “I’ve never heard of dementia before.”
Alzheimer’s affects the way your brain works and can cause dementia.
Alzheimer’s causes cognitive decline, memory loss and loss of the ability to remember.
It affects about 1.4 million Americans, according to the Alzheimer’s Association.

There are many possible ways to get Alzheimer’s.
If you have one of the signs, like an older age, you may not be at risk for Alzheimer’s in the long run.
But if you don’t have a family history of Alzheimers, you still have a chance.
The best way to avoid Alzheimer’s is to have a healthy diet.
A healthy diet includes whole grains, fruits and vegetables, legumes, nuts, fish and nuts.
Avoid using medications for any condition, including Alzheimer’s or dementia.
Also avoid smoking, especially during the early stages of dementia, and take your medication as directed by your doctor.
You can also try cognitive behavioral therapy, which involves talking to yourself.
This is a form of relaxation, often done in your own home or at the beach.
It may be helpful to try some simple cognitive exercises like repeating the same word over and over, repeating it aloud, and doing it in a relaxing way.
The cognitive behavioral therapies also work to get your mind back to normal.
You don’t need to take drugs to treat dementia.
You just need to eat a healthy, balanced diet.
