Ask yourself the one key question. How much do you value your brain? After all, remember that your brain is reading this description! Your brain is your greatest asset and should be treated as such. But neglect of the brain is even more epidemic and dangerous than the epidemic of dementia.
So, the status and functioning of your brain should be a high priority in personal health care. However, except for rare instances, your doctor may not bother to monitor your brain function until it degenerates significantly. And then it might just be chalked up to "normal aging." By then it is more difficult to turn around.
The Alzheimer's Association states that 1 in 8 Americans has or will have Alzheimer's. Alzheimer's and dementia are the 6th leading cause of death and 1 in 3 die with dementia. Will you be the next? There are 7 Key actions to take to help avoid ending up in a memory care facility or community. (In truth, there are more than 7 actions, but the actions in this book are the most important for everyone to address first.) Trained in multiple specialties, Dr. Jay Sordean outlines these actions that are essential to not only reduce the risk of dementia and Alzheimer's but also to increase your quality of life in other areas of health. These 7 Key Memory Care Actions are also discussed in Dr. Jay's news talk Television segments he has appeared in around the country. They can be viewed at TheRedwoodClinic dot com /media-kit. Why does Dr. Jay bother to take the time and expense to publicize this on TV?

Thus, the bullet point version of this book can be seen live in his news appearances -- the substance of the topic found in this book.
