Hello and Welcome to Sweeney’s Blogs!
Today’s blog is going to be the 13th and final blog in the Alzheimer’s Avoidance series. As this blog is going to be the final blog in this series, at least for now, it is going to act as a summary of the whole series. In this blog, I am going to be going through some of the main points that have been discussed throughout this series and how they relate to both Alzheimer’s Avoidance and Alzheimer’s Awareness.
Throughout this series, we have talked about several different methods techniques that can help reduce your chance of getting Alzheimer’s/ Dementia. These methods have ranged from regular exercise, through to completing puzzle games and even listening to music. The main theme that transcended throughout was that all of the different methods/techniques engaged the brain in Mental Stimulation.
Mental Stimulation is at the forefront when it comes to reducing the chances of getting Alzheimer’s/Dementia. Ensuring that your mind is actively engaging in a vast array of activities is key when it comes to not only Alzheimer’s/Dementia but also when it comes to Mental Health as a whole.
One common trend that is very fitting to Alzheimer’s is a lack of understanding. It is something that you find more and more when discussing more general Mental Health problems but even more so when you are talking about Alzheimer’s/Dementia. Learning how a condition affects not only the person suffering but also their surrounding family and friends can be essential when it comes to coming to terms with the condition. It is said that you can only really accept a condition if you fully understand what it is and the effect that it can have on your lives. In my opinion, if you fully understand a condition then you will be better equipped to process and manage the condition if it ever affects you or your family.
Although this series is coming to a close, I will still be creating a lot of content in regards to Alzheimer’s. All of the blogs in this series are available in the Blogapedia page, every other blog I have done on Alzheimer’s is available via selecting the Alzheimer’s category on the Category cloud or by searching Alzheimer’s on the pages search bar. I am also fixing my Alzheimer’s Awareness page, Don’t Forget Me, so if you would like to learn more about Alzheimer’s then more content can be found there. I will be adding more content to the page over the next few weeks so if you are curious, check it out. you can find the page here: http://www.dontforgetme.org.uk.
That’s all I want to talk about in today’s blog! Thank you all for reading! What do you think of this series? Are you sad to see it go? What series would you like to see on the page next? Would you like to see any specific blogs in the future?
