Preserving Your Memory magazine - Fall 2010
Preserving Your Memory Magazine [5]

Autumn is a time of transition and change, and in that spirit, we have some good news to share on the research front (page 29) in this issue of Preserving Your Memory. We have plenty more to share, too.

Many people take advantage of cooler weather to take on home improvement projects in the fall. Did you know you could make your loved one with Alzheimer’s feel more at home with some simple home design techniques? Learn how, beginning on page 8. As we head indoors, let’s consider how we can make healthy meals in very little time with chef Kirk Leins (page 22).

In our cover story, the U.S. Surgeon General, Rear Admiral Regina Benjamin, M.D., shares her thoughts on getting elder minority Americans with Alzheimer’s and dementia the care they need (p. 18).

And learn how Generations United, a national nonprofit organization, connects older Americans with the young in order to bridge a gap in a vital way (page 14).

Here’s hoping fall brings a healthy transition to us all!
