Cognitive Decline, Dementia, Alzheimer’s – Dr. Deborah Barnes

The Not Old Better Show Science Interview Series

Welcome to The Not Old Better Show on radio and podcast. I’m Paul Vogelzang, and today’s show is brought to you by Hapbee.

 Healthcare and health news is among the most popular topics for our Not Old Better Show audience.  Science Daily and the National Institutes of Health now report that nearly half of all older adults now die with a diagnosis of dementia and Alzheimer’s listed on their medical record, up 36% from two decades ago.  But that sharp rise may have more to do with better public awareness of those conditions.  The subject of our show today is dementia and Alzheimer’s research to help you all with better awareness, diagnosis, and understanding of cognitive decline.

Our science and healthcare interview series guest today is Dr. Deborah Barnes.  Deborah E. Barnes, PhD believes that the improvements in physical and cognitive function will have longer-term benefits, such as fewer falls, emergency department visits, and hospitalizations, and could also delay long-term care placement.

Dr. Barnes will tell us today about the latest cognitive decline research, including what’s going on with Alzheimer’s and dementia, the potential protective effects of physical activity, as well as dementia risks, and other findings.

Please join me in welcoming to The Not Old Better Show on radio and podcast, Dr. Deborah Barnes.
