Many people believe that memory loss and aging go hand-in-hand. That, as a person gets older, his or her memory begins to fail. While some change may be expected as you age, that doesn’t mean you can’t do something about it in the absence of a brain disease, such as Alzheimer’s Disease or Dementia. You can be proactive in using some strategies and lifestyle adaptations.
Medical conditions, medications, diet and exercise, among other things, may all play a role in how your memory works.
The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service in Upshur County will begin offering Master of Memory, a series of lessons that will help you understand how your memory works and what may affect your memory. Master of Memory will also help you identify and use strategies to improve your memory function.
Topics of the classes include: Am I Losing My Mind?, Memory Strategies, Nutrition and Memory Function, Medications and Memory Function, Medical Conditions and Memory Function and Exercise for the Body and Mind.
Classes will be held at Focused Care of Gilmer in May. Space is limited, and participants must sign up prior to the program, so for more information, contact either LaShondra Brown at Focused Care or Julie York at the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service at 903.680.8128 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
