#022 The Unspoken Truth About Alzheimer’s with Jim McAleer, CEO of Alzheimer’s OC
4 days ago
June is Brain Awareness and Mental Health month. Ladies Roadmap is shining a light on Alzheimer’s and today we are at the Alzheimer’s OC headquarters in Irvine, CA with the CEO Jim McAleer. There are over 84,000 people who suffer from Alzheimer's in Orange County alone and at least 34,000 Caregivers. Alzheimer’s Orange County is a community based non profit organization providing free programs and services for local families affected by Alzheimer’s and Dementia. All of us knows someone whose been affected by this debilitating disease in some fashion, whether as a patient or caregiver. “Unfortunately, ladies it is far more likely to be a woman affected. You are twice as likely to get this disease and 66% of all caregivers are women.” There are many forms of Dementia, Alzheimer’s is just one form. What kind of doctor should you go to if you are concerned about yours or a loved ones memory? There is no cure at this time but many forms are treatable so get checked early if concerned! Exercise and diet are so important. Brain and heart health are one in the same. Many of the services provided at ALZOC are for the caregivers, teaching them how to not only care for their loved ones but also for themselves. “It’s the airplane rule, you have to put your own oxygen mask on first before you can help others long term.” We also hear 2 brave caregiver’s stories. Phyllis Greenberg shares her valuable story and journey with her beloved husband Morris. Jan Ebert shares her poignant story, as a loving daughter, with her dear mother. How do you recognize the signs of Alzheimer's and what do you look for in a loved one? They have different experiences and share some very important information and tips on how to not only take care of a loved one with Alzheimer's but how they took care of themselves. The importance of being honest and open with your friends and family. Alzheimer's is not a topic we want to talk about, but we must with so many people suffering and the numbers increasing every year. Tune into the next episodes where we discuss more about prevention, or at least delaying the onset of Alzheimer's. We will bring you more tips to stave off this disease as we share Maria Shriver’s “Move the Minds” event and fundraiser! We can all help!
