Veteran’s Day is  here. This is a time when we remember all of our fellow man who have served our country.

Many of our veterans are senior citizens.As such their risk of developing or having Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia is greater than the average person. Also engaging in combat and the stress that brings can alsoincrease a person’ chances of developing Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia.

In addition,many of our veterans were exposed to harmful chemicals.

Any way no matter what the cause of a veteran who has Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia,we should be proud to honot them on Veteran’s Day.

Engage these folks in a meaningful activity on their day.
