June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month. This month, learn about Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias – and participate in activities that strengthen your brain.
Not sure where to begin? Here are some ways to get started:
- Try this crossword puzzle to challenge your brain and learn about brain health (view answer key).
- Watch this video, from the UNC Wellness Center, about Alzheimer’s and Memory.
- Take the personal and confidential Well-Being Index to check your stress and well-being, then practice one of these 10-minute Stress Tamers.
- Exercise can help people with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia (ADRD). If you have a loved one with ADRD, try exercising together – then you’ll both reap the health benefits of being active. Here’s how to get started.
