Aging & Alzheimer’s awareness – Week 4 of 4

Inside the Brain: An Interactive Tour – source

For my last weekly post leading up the the ‘Walk to End Alzheimer’s’ event I thought I would provide a really educational and interesting tour of the human brain and how Alzheimer’s affects it.

Alzheimer’s is an awful disease and I know one day we will find a cure but we can all help bring that day closer by enabling research, reading about achievements and discoveries AND looking after our brains and our bodies every day.  

The Brain Tour explains how the brain works and how Alzheimer’s affects it.

Aging & Alzheimer’s awareness – Week 3 of 4

The three general stages of Alzheimer’s – source

Alzheimer’s disease typically progresses slowly in three general stages — mild (early-stage), moderate (middle-stage), and severe (late-stage). Since Alzheimer’s affects people in different ways, each person will experience symptoms – or progress through Alzheimer’s stages – differently.

Timmy Cronin Snr Mem. Cup 2017 Match Reports

Game #1: 9.20am – 10.30am: Raleigh GAA (5-15) V Winston-Salem Wolfhounds GAA (3-08)

The game started very well for both teams, both registering early points and it looked like we were in for a great battle.
