I was just reading an article in the local paper (yes, I still get and read a newspaper) and the stats are a bit scary. Of the 5 million folks currently diagnosed with Alz, 59% are between 64 and 84. A male at age 65 has a 9% chance of getting Alz, while a female has a 17% chance, and the stats just get higher as one ages.
Which brings up the question, which may be very delicate and maybe should not be discussed here. Feel free to ignore this thread.
Anyone here bicycling with diagnosed Alzheimers?
Anyone know anyone bicycling with diagnosed Alzheimers?
If so, how is it working out?
And, no, neither my wife (76>77) nor I (74>75) have stated Alz symptoms.
Do you think bicycling delays or precludes Alz?
Do you have a long-term care policy covering Alz?
We have several folks in our church with Alz. Nora and I used to give musical programs to an Alz home, and my singing group still does.
