Memory care can be taxing on a caregiver. When a staff member is consistently charged with caring for more advanced Alzheimer's residents, the care can be even more stressful.
Seniors who have been hospitalized have a higher risk for experiencing a cognitive decline, a new study finds.
New research shows housebound seniors are twice as likely to develop Alzheimer's disease as more active individuals, which may provide indications and clues for prevention.
Older adults who remain as physically and socially active as possible have a better chance of not becoming disabled in their elderly years, say researchers at Rush University in Chicago.
