Want another great reason to eat healthy? The food choices you make daily might lower your odds of getting Alzheimer’s disease, some scientists say.
Researchers have found that people who stuck to a diet that included foods like berries, leafy greens, and fish had a major drop in their risk for the memory-sapping disorder, which affects more than 5 million Americans over age 65.
The eating plan is called the MIND diet. Here’s how it works.
Personal care like dressing, bathing, and using the toilet
24-hour emergency care
Social and recreational activities
How Do I Find the Right Nursing Home?
It takes time to research nursing homes and decide on the one that’s best for your loved one. So you should start looking long before you’ll need to take the step of moving him. Many facilities often have waiting periods, too. Plan ahead so you can make the transition much easier.
Family and caregivers should talk about what services their loved one needs and how often he needs them. Think about what’s important to you before you start calling different nursing homes.
Before you schedule visits to the ones you’re interested in, ask about vacancies, admission requirements, the level of care they provide, and if they accept payment with Medicare, Medicaid, or other government-funded health insurance options.
