Dementia and Aging – GrapeVine Project Preview

The Wisconsin Women’s Health Foundation is proud to announce the upcoming release of a new unit on Dementia and Aging through our GrapeVine Project.

about usThe GrapeVine Project is a free health education program for women presented by Faith Community/Parish Nurses (FCNs) right in your own community. The WWHF’s new unit on Dementia and Aging will educate women on:

What is dementia?

What are the different types of dementia?

What are the symptoms/side-effects of dementia?

Is there anything YOU can do to prevent or delay the onset of dementia?

Dementia is a common side effect of aging – as many as one in ten people over the age of 65 suffer from some type of dementia, with Alzheimer’s disease accounting for up to 60-80% of all cases. Dementia is a result of physical changes in the brain, and is not a normal part of the aging process. By educating women on dementia and the challenges it presents for the individual as well as the caregiver, we hope to promote healthy lifestyles that will delay the onset and provide skills, tools, and knowledge to help cope with the disease.
