New Research from Alzheimer’s Association – People Who Work Closely Together Better Able to Withstand Alzheimer’s


Compelling new research just released show that people who work closely with other people, more than with data or physical things, may be better able to withstand the onset of Alzheimer’s. The report is one of many new studies unveiled during the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference®2016 (AAIC® 2016), July 24-28 in Toronto.

Further, according to new research to be reported at AAIC 2016, a cognitively stimulating lifestyle may counteract the negative cognitive effects of an unhealthy diet, which has been associated with memory and thinking declines in older adults. The evidence is increasingly clear that lifestyle factors play an important role in the development and progress of Alzheimer’s and dementia, and should be a key consideration in treatment and prevention of the disease.

This new data adds to a growing body of research that suggests more mentally stimulating lifestyles, which include more formal education, complex work environments and engagement with people, may be associated with reduced cognitive decline and dementia as a person ages

Other important studies discussed at AAIC include updates on the progress in both eye and smell tests for early detection of cognitive decline and dementia (EMBARGOED RELEASED TUESDAY, JULY 26, 2016). In addition, a study of Medicare claims suggests that potentially avoidable hospitalizations in people with Alzheimer’s and other dementias costs Medicare $2.6 billion (EMBARGOED RELEASED MONDAY, JULY 25, 2016).

Readers can join in on a recent interview with Heather Snyder, Ph.D., senior director of medical and scientific operations at the Alzheimer’s Association to learn more about these recent studies…including:

*Specific findings from the studies

*Work environment

*Why studies significant?

*Other studies…including the eyes/nose

*Importance of early detection

*Where can we learn more?
