Well, July 4th celebrations have come and gone already! Cooper, our dog, just started getting over the trauma of the fireworks from that weekend. I couldn’t even get him out of the house to take a walk until yesterday! Poor guy!! Since I was young enough to understand, I saw the passing of July 4th as the passing of the summer. Back to School advertisements are widespread. My granddaughter actually goes back to school on August 3! For her the summer is gone!
It is hard to believe that we are already taking a retrospective look at the first half of 2022. What I have noticed this year is that there is a lot of attention being brought to brain aging and brain health. We have Brain Awareness Week and Brain Health Month. Of course, there is the first big fundraiser for the Alzheimer’s Association on the summer solstice – The Longest Day. May was older American’s month. Ageism is finally getting the attention it deserves. Right now, it feels like the bandage is being ripped off the problem – we feel so much pain but the healing hasn’t really started yet. I knew that when the biggest part of the Boomer group passed retirement age, things were going to happen. Aging is very different anymore. We don’t believe that we are incapable of having a productive life after we hit 65. Many boomers are not retiring until they reach their 70’s. Then they are looking for post-retirement jobs or positions where they can use their accumulated knowledge base. That is easier said than done when it comes to finding and getting those positions. That is an article for another time. Health equity is a big issue. The boomers are a big enough group that we can push change forward just as we did throughout our lives. It is an interesting and exciting time.
Now to be totally involved in all this aging excitement, we must take care of ourselves and our brains. Wear and tear, unhealthy lifestyles, acquired chronic diseases, and financial vulnerability can all put a different spin on our golden years. My belief is that we are always capable of change, but we must be an active part in changing. No one else is going to do this for us. That brings us back to the middle of July. We have passed the half-way point of the year. Let’s all make an effort to finish off this year in a better place than when we started. Happy Half New Year!
The Walk to End Alzheimer’s fundraising is picking up steam. Time slips by quickly and fundraising needs to keep up. The Walk to End Alzheimer’s this year in the Greater Cincinnati area is October 1. The money raised in this event provides caregiver support, resources, and research funds. It is a national event and there is some competition between regions on what area will surpass the $1 million dollar mark. I am passionate about this fundraiser. This is an area of concentration for me. Alzheimer’s and other dementias are epidemic. The economics of caring for those with this disease are catastrophic. As much as I touted being part of the large Boomer group before, the size of the group scares me when it comes to Alzheimer’s. So please, I am asking you to be a part of finding the first survivor. You can donate at my page: https://act.alz.org/goto/boomer. If you live in the Greater Cincinnati area – join my team – My Boomer Brain and walk with me on October 1.
And finally, check out www.memory-lane.tv . This is a stunningly beautiful multisensory, multimedia therapy to address the behaviors of dementia and provide respite for caregivers. I have been in this field for over twenty years, and I have never seen anything like this. It is the real deal that provides solutions to behaviors without the use of medications and offers respite to overworked caregivers. It is a streaming platform, so the cost is very minimal and can be delivered anywhere there is a smart tv. Take a look, take advantage of the free trial, and contact me with questions. Memory Lane TV gives those at the end of their journey with dementia some peace and a higher quality of life.
Please take good care of yourself,
