NARFE December

In the spirit of the season, we'd like to thank all NARFE members for joining us in the fight against Alzheimer's. Your passion and dedication to defeat Alzheimer's means so much to us and to the millions of people facing the disease. NARFE Walk to End Alzheimer's® teams have already raised an incredible $75,643 to help advance Alzheimer's care, support and research — and there's no stopping. Last-minute donations can be turned in through Dec. 31, so make one last push to get us over the finish line. If you weren't able to join a team this year, you can still participate by making a gift directly to one of the NARFE teams. Thank you for your partnership and outstanding commitment to the Alzheimer's Association®. We wish you a happy and healthy holiday season!

Family and friends may need help adjusting to Alzheimer's
Part of living with Alzheimer's is adjusting to the reality of the disease, and family members and friends may need help to do the same. Knowing what to expect and what resources are available can make the process easier for you and those close to you. Learn more.

High heart rate linked to dementia risk
A study published in Alzheimer's & Dementia®: The Journal of the Alzheimer's Association found that a high resting heart rate in older adults was associated with a greater risk of dementia. Followed for up to 12 years, study participants with a resting heart rate of 80 beats or more per minute had an average 55% higher risk of dementia than those with a heart rate of 60 to 69 beats per minute. The study doesn't show causation, but the results add to evidence that a relationship exists between heart health and brain health as we age. Learn more.

Managing expectations can help make the holidays less stressful
The holiday season can be challenging for families facing Alzheimer's or another dementia, especially during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. With some planning and adjusted expectations, your celebrations can still be happy occasions. Learn more.

Studies link education to reduced risk of Alzheimer's
The benefits of a formal education may go beyond landing a good job and continue to pay off long after retirement. In the latest issue of ALZ magazine, read how evidence has shown that formal education, like high school and college, may reduce a person's risk of developing Alzheimer's. Learn more.
