The Gateway Region YMCA and Alzheimers Association have partnered to offer free educational classes to Y members and the community on Alzheimer’s warning signs, basic caregiving and living with the disease.
Alzheimers Association will host Healthy Living for your Brain and Body at the South County YMCA on September 21. Learn about research in the areas of diet and nutrition, exercise, cognitive activity and social engagement, and use hands-on tools to help you incorporate these tips into a plan for healthy aging.
Alzheimer’s is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States. More than 5 million Americans are impacted by the disease – including more than 330,000 individuals with the disease and 900,000+ people providing unpaid care for them in Missouri and Illinois.
