Supporting Dementia and Alzheimer’s through Activity in the Bay Area

When someone you love has dementia or Alzheimer's disease, you feel like you've got to do something to help them. Knowing what to do can be a challenge. These diseases are unfortunately progressive, leaving everyone involved with all that much more worry and frustration.

Baby Boomers, Retirement, and Health

Between 1946 and 1964, there was a surge of births in the United States thanks to an amazing economy and a sense of hope for the future following the long years of World War II.
