Specializing in older adult issues
Keep your brain active
We are told to in order to age well, we must keep our bodies in good working order. Health care providers encourage us to eat a balanced diet, exercise and take medications as prescribed. But what about our brain. It is critical to work your brain as well. Our last blog post talked about eating your veggies for brain health. But it is also important to exercise your brain. There are many ways to keep your brain active, including reading, socializing and playing games.
Although this may not prevent a disease process such as Alzheimer's disease, according to Dr. Gary Small, director of the UCLA Longevity Center at the university's Semel Institute for Neuroscience & Human Behavior and professor of psychiatry at UCLA's David Geffen School of Medicine, keeping your brain active may help with an individual compensate for memory deficits.
Memory changes as we age.

When life throws us curve balls
The challenges we face as we age, whether you are a "younger" or "older" adult, can be difficult. This can include declining physical health of yourself or a loved one, loss of independence, dementia, fatigue from caregiving, or issues of grief & loss. Your family may be emotionally or physically unavailable. Sometimes, these challenges lead to symptoms of depression and/or anxiety.
At Shore Neurocognitive Health, we work with adults of all stages. Perhaps your are a "younger" or "older" adult struggling with anxiety, depression, or relationship issues. Call today and we will work on your challenges together!
Shore Neurocognitive Health is a woman-owned private practice focused on older adults and located on the eastern shore of Maryland.
Hydrate before you dehydrate
Staying well hydrated is always important, but even more so during the hot summer months. So many times we hear clients say "But I don't like water." Try adding a slice of lemon, lime or fresh fruit to ice water. Just that small addition will give just the needed added flavor. One other tip is keep a pitcher of water in the fridge (and throw in that fresh fruit), moving it to the front. Now, when you open the fridge, you are tempted not by sugary soda or caffeine heavy drinks, but inviting refreshing water. No need to buy bottled, tap will do fine!
Navigating My Way
Join us for a chat about the ins and outs, ups and downs, rewards and challenges of caring for (or maybe being) an older adult. Dr. Maggie Black and Beth Parker-O'Brien will be sharing thoughts on how to navigate the waters. We look forward to sharing with you.
