More often than not, getting older comes with a few extra challenges: slight memory loss, slower movement, and even aches in places you didn’t know existed. While most of these changes are simply the results of aging, it’s always smart to be aware of signs that show something a little more. In terms of Alzheimer’s, it’s easy to perceive memory loss as a sign of age. In a recent article by the Huffington Post, the 10 most cited signs of Alzheimer’s, as stated by the Alzheimer’s Association, include the following:
1. Memory loss that disrupts daily life
2. Challenges in planning or solving problems
3. Difficulty completing familiar tasks
4. Confusion with time or place
5. Trouble understanding visual images and spatial relationships
6. New problems with words in speaking or writing
7. Misplacing things and losing the ability to retrace steps
8. Decreased or poor judgment
9. Withdrawal from work or social activities
10. Changes in mood and personality
Although these may not apply to you or a loved one, the best way to stay aware is to be educated. Rosener House specializes in finding fun and exciting ways to enhance memory loss and stimulate the minds of those who may be experiencing these symptoms. Be sure to visit the Rosener webpage to see what activities we have in store for the month August.

Each year Peninsula Volunteers takes time to celebrate all our Community Volunteers. April is National Volunteer Month, and since we couldn’t do our work without all our magnificent volunteers, we want to say “Thank You!”
The Peninsula Volunteers and Mary Rached (Director of Community Volunteering) organized a fabulous brunch for over 100 of our best friends. Chef Larry Wong outdid himself yet again with great cuisine.
We honored our Shining Stars!
