Podcast #332 – Dementia Prevention: Using Your Head to Save Your Brain
In this episode I am speaking with Mitchell Clionsky who is the co-author with his wife of the book Dementia Prevention: Using Your Head to Save Your Brain. This is a topic that many of us will have to deal with. It may be an aging parent, a spouse, or yourself. It is a fascinating topic on what you can be doing now to prevent getting dementia.
Let me read the author’s bios:

This is a topic that has touched my life. My mother died in her mid-80s with dementia and her last few years were not pleasant due to the dementia. My son’s mother-in-law started showing signs of dementia about a dozen years ago when she was in her late 50s. She is now in her late 60s and requires full nursing home care. This a debilitating condition and for some this is preventable.
