Black Parents Aging Podcast

Mar 3, 2021

In this episode, we talk about Alzheimer’s disease and Dementia. Some of the early dementia symptoms include challenges with problem-solving, short-term memory, judgment, mood, and behavior. Suffering from Dementia does not automatically mean you are suffering from Alzheimer's disease. On the other hand, if you have Alzheimer’s disease, you definitely have Dementia.   

High blood pressure and high cholesterol increase the chances of someone suffering from Vascular Dementia. In today’s episode, Mia Chester, who has been working at the Alzheimer's Association for the last 14 years, shares how you can help reduce the chances of suffering from Dementia and other diseases related to it. Tune in to learn more!

  • The science part and research part of Dementia. 
  • Things to do to prevent the risk of getting Dementia.
