Preserving Your Memory magazine - Winter 2012
Preserving Your Memory Magazine [5]

Winter is upon us, and we hope you have a warm place in which to enjoy this issue of Preserving Your Memory. We are thrilled to announce that the Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research Foundation recently received a four-star charity rating from Charity Navigator. We are the only Alzheimer’s charity to receive this highest rating.

Home safety is always a concern when a loved one with Alzheimer’s lives at home. We cover some sound basics for keeping everyone safe (page 8). Grief is a difficult emotion that every caregiver and loved one of a person with Alzheimer’s must face throughout the journey. We find out how to understand and deal with grief beginning on page 10.

The link between diabetes and Alzheimer’s appears to be stronger than we previously thought. Find out more beginning on page 29. And discover the latest innovative research the Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research Foundation is supporting on page 27.

In our cover story, actor Victor Garber (Titanic, Alias) talks about his family’s battles with Alzheimer’s and what that means to him (page 18).

We hope we can help you stay warm and informed in these chilly months!
