The number of Americans living with Alzheimer's disease is growing and is expected to escalate
rapidly in coming years, as baby boomers turn 65 and older-- the age range of greatest risk of Alzheimer's. Dr. Kristoffer Rhoads , a clinical neuropsychologist, who is specialized in the evaluation and treatment of dementia and neurodegenerative disorders will describe the magnitude of the problem and help us understand how to advocate for early and accurate diagnosis and will describe new prevention techniques and early stage treatment. Lifestyle interventions such as exercise, diet, cognitive stimulation and increasing social support are showing promising results. Dr. Rhoads will also discuss local and national resources for memory loss and dementia, and include information about the Washington State Plan and Dementia Action Collaborative.
