From the Editor's Desk:
Warm Up with Us!
PYM_Winter 14With record low temperatures across the nation, winter has been somewhat harsh for many of us. Here’s hoping the winter issue of Preserving Your Memory will bring a little warmth into your day!

In this issue, we talk with the renowned singer Judy Collins about the power of music to heal (page 18). We also talk with author Deborah Shouse about her powerful new book, which chronicles her caregiving experiences with her mother (page 12).

On the research front, we talk with Dr. Sidney Strickland about his team’s research into the vascular connections to Alzheimer’s disease (page 10), and announce a breakthrough at the Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research laboratory (page 11). On the fitness front, we look at new research that shows that aerobic exercise is even better for brain health than we thought (page 22).

We also explore ways to manage stress more effectively (page 8) and how to help a loved one who is experiencing the phenomenon known as “sundowning” (page 14). And we examine the process of the Alzheimer’s diagnosis with a leading Mayo Clinic doctor (page 26).

We hope this issue brightens your winter days!
