If you are like those of us at the Fisher Center, you too are getting ready for summer and the positive vibes from the sun’s rays. Some parts of the country have already warmed up and for those of us who are still experiencing snow, we are hoping to see the grass any day now. In the meantime, we want to start shedding some of the extra mental and physical baggage by thinking positively and exercising. We hope these two articles below will help motivate you.
Our first article outlines how a new study shows that having positive feelings about growing old may help to ward off Alzheimer’s disease. This study showed that even those with high-risk factors for developing Alzheimer’s were less likely to develop the disease if they had positive beliefs about old age.
In our second article, a study conducted by physicians at the American Academy of Neurology found that exercising just twice a week may improve thinking and memory skills in people with mild cognitive impairment. So not only will you get your body in shape you can also get your brain in shape too!

First and foremost, we at Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research Foundation would like to wish you and your family a very Happy Passover and Happy Easter. As we begin to welcome all things new with the start of spring, we wanted to share the below articles with you – outlining some new advancements.
Our first article outlines how researchers are moving closer to developing a blood test to help diagnose Alzheimer’s disease. The blood test measures a specific substance in the blood with 90 percent accuracy during the early stages of the disease. This advancement is paving the way for new developments to treat or curb the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.
In our second article, researchers are helping caregivers find new ways to communicate and care for their loved ones, which studies show, can help improve overall well-being for caregivers as well as their partners. If you are a caregiver and find your communication strategies to be ineffective, you may find this article helpful in developing a different approach.
