“Care. Cure. Prevent.”—Paving the Way Forward in Alzheimer’s Disease

Join us at The Kensington Sierra Madre on Nov. 15 at 3 p.m. PST for a journey to understanding brain health and the challenges of Alzheimer’s disease worldwide.

“Care. Cure. Prevent.” is not just an event—it’s our heartfelt message. We want to stand together, learn more, and show care and support for everyone affected by Alzheimer’s.

The disease touches so many lives, and it’s time to come together to understand, help, and uplift those affected, their families, and caregivers.

Secure your spot for our virtual event—”Care. Cure. Prevent.”.

Our promise is to love and care for your family as we do our own.

Meet event moderator Lauren Miller Rogen and HFC

We’re so lucky to have Lauren Miller Rogen, co-founder of Hilarity for Charity (HFC), as our virtual event host. 

“I always look forward to Care. Cure. Prevent. Each year, we hear from incredible experts, answering questions directly from the community about dementia treatment, prevention, and care. I always learn something new and am honored to bring these important discussions to our shared community at HFC, Kensington Senior Living, and beyond,” Lauren said of the event. 

HFC has always been a shining light in the memory care community, using joy and laughter to help address Alzheimer’s.

Working together: When we unite, great things happen

Our “Care. Cure. Prevent.” event is a beautiful example of unity. 

The Kensington Sierra Madre is teaming up with some of the top names in medicine and research, such as:

When these experts join hands, it exemplifies the strength and togetherness we need to face Alzheimer’s. The best minds come together for a cause that touches so many lives.

Brain health matters to us all

Our brain is at the heart of who we are. It holds our stories, feelings, and ways of showing we care. 

When brain diseases touch our lives, it’s not just the person with the illness who feels it. Families feel it, too, seeing their loved ones change.

It’s important to think about the people behind the diagnoses. Let’s stand together for brain health. 

By joining our virtual event, you’ll understand more about what makes our brains special.

Discussion topics will include:

  • Exploring the human factor of Alzheimer’s disease, the myths vs. the facts
  • What to do after receiving dementia or Alzheimer’s diagnosis
  • How to prevent Alzheimer’s disease and the impact of hereditary risk factors
  • Recent breakthroughs in ALZ research, treatments, and blood test diagnosis
  • How will the Biogen drug approval will impact our community
  • Navigating family dynamics and overcoming caregiver challenges

Hope in Alzheimer’s research

In the vast world of Alzheimer’s research, we’ve found some rays of hope to share. Our panel will talk about exciting progress made by people who never give up on finding better ways to help.

These new steps can make a real difference for many who live with Alzheimer’s and their families. 

We’ll discuss treatments that might slow things down or even bring back some lost memories.

With everyone’s support and the smart minds in research, we’re at a hopeful place on our shared path.

Approaches and therapies for Alzheimer’s disease

  • Amyloid targeting: Many treatments focus on decreasing beta-amyloid plaques, often considered a main indicator of Alzheimer’s progression.
  • Tau targeting: When tau proteins become tangled and build up, they’re a notable feature of Alzheimer’s. Emerging treatments aim to prevent these tangles or clear tau from the brain.
  • Anti-inflammatory approaches: Persistent brain inflammation is thought to be connected to Alzheimer’s. Researchers are exploring drugs to lessen this inflammation, which could help slow the disease’s advance.
  • Neuroprotective agents: These aim to shield neurons from the harm brought on by Alzheimer’s, helping maintain mental clarity and function.
  • Lifestyle changes: Approaches such as a healthy diet, regular exercise, brain exercises, and social interaction are being studied for their possible positive effects.
  • Stem cell therapy: While research is still in its infancy, using stem cells to replenish damaged neurons in Alzheimer’s patients is a promising avenue being investigated.
  • Blood-brain barrier technologies: Emerging technologies are being researched to safely penetrate the blood-brain barrier, enabling medications to directly access the brain effectively.

As we welcome these new discoveries, let’s move forward with renewed hope, always supporting the Alzheimer’s community and advocating for a cure.

Taking care of your memory with simple habits 

Our everyday choices can greatly affect our brain health and memory.

Research shows us how our lives can help our minds stay sharp.

Want to give your brain a boost? Here are some caring steps you can take:

  • Eat foods full of omega-3s, antioxidants, and vital vitamins
  • Move your body with activities like walking, swimming, or yoga
  • Keep your mind active with reading, puzzles, or even fun games
  • Life-enrichment activities 
  • Spend time with friends and family
  • Get a good night’s sleep

Facing Alzheimer’s: Steps after the diagnosis

Finding out about an Alzheimer’s diagnosis can be hard, both for the person and their family.

But remember, you’re not going through this by yourself.

It helps to talk about what’s happening. Sharing feelings, knowing what might come next, and thinking about the future can make things clearer.

Staying connected and engaged with a community can also bring comfort and insight.

And don’t be shy to ask for help. Resources are available. 

With the right information and support, families can find the best ways to care for and be there for their loved ones.

Navigating family changes with care

Changes within the family can happen as time goes by, especially with big life events, growing roles, or when everyone’s needs start to change.

Families often encounter challenges like figuring out who does what, money matters, or adjusting to older parents or growing kids. 

These changes can sometimes make things tense or lead to misunderstandings.

To keep the family close and understanding:

  • Talk openly, and listen with your heart
  • Have regular family chats
  • Be patient and try to see where others are coming from
  • Spend special moments together
  • Consider talking to a counselor or mediator if things get tough
