Daily Living Made Easier

Since Alzheimer's Disease is an important concern for the Sandwich Generation caring for elderly parents, I was very interested to read an email from Jen Boscacci of CBS News.com letting us know about an interview where Katie Couric sits down with author Jean Carper to talk about her new book, "100 Simple Things You Can Do To Prevent Alzheimer's." As she explained in her email, "During the interview they discussed the potential role multivitamins plays, ways in which caffeine can help, and the issues that many caregivers face when caring for someone with Alzheimer’s." A very interesting interview about a very intriguing book!

Here's the interview:

Ms. Carper's book seeks to answer many questions including, " Does vitamin D slow down progression of Alzheimers Disease?" and "Does Caffeine Help?" I really enjoyed the interview and have added the book to my "gotta get it" list. 

One little note – the video may stop at about 4 minutes and go back to 2 minutes. I had this happen twice. I found out if I just moved the little bar at the bottom to 4:45 or 5 minutes, it then worked fine. I try to avoid videos with these types of issues, but felt this was important enough to make it worth while.

You can find the book or read reviews about "100 Simple Things You Can Do To Prevent Alzheimer's" by Jean Carper, with foods and ideas that may help prevent Alzheimer's, by clicking here.

    I run a senior lifestyle service working with independent seniors living at home, and one of the most important changes we can help people with is to improve their diets to include some of the suggestions included in Ms. Carper’s book, with the goal of improving cognitive function and emotional well being. Thanks for passing along this valuable and researched information.
