Key to Successful Aging
The key to successful aging is a healthy, common sense lifestyle.  The goals are to slow or prevent the loss of brain cells, maintain the brain's capacity to make up for any loss and let remaining brain cells function well.  Here are some tips from the Alzheimer's Foundation of America.
-  Visit your doctor or other healthcare professional regularly.
-  Follow a health diet and take vitamins, as discussed with your clinician.
-  Exercise daily, such as walking 30 minutes per day.
-  Control hypertension, diabetes and heart disease - risk factor for dementia - through physical exercise quitting smoking, controlling blood pressure, lowering cholesterol and avoiding obesity.
-  Participate in activities that stimulate your brain, such as reading, crossword puzzles and learning new skills.
-  Be social.
-  Manage stress through techniques such as relaxation, meditation and yoga.
-  Treat depression.
-  Limit alcohol consumption.

Twelve Warning Signs of Dementia (per the Alzheimer's Foundation of America)
 The symptoms of dementia vary, depending on the type of disease causing it.
 1. Trouble with new memories
 2. Relying on memory helpers
 3. Trouble finding words
 4. Struggling to complete familiar actions
 5. Confusion about time, place or people
 6. Misplacing familiar objects
 7. Onset of new depression or irritability
 8. Making bad decisions
 9. Personality changes
 10. Loss of interest in important responsibilities
 11. Seeing or hearing things
 12. Expressing false beliefs
 If someone is exhibiting these symptoms, the person should check out his or her concerns with a healthcare professional. Awareness of these warning signs is not a substitute for a structured screening or consultation with a primary care provider.
