Brain health is one of the most important aspects of healthy aging. A variety of factors can contribute to keeping the brain strong and active including diet, exercise and taking the time to engage in mentally stimulating activities like puzzles, word games, or learning a new skill.

Unfortunately, even after “doing everything right” people may face living with a memory disorder. According to the Florida Department of Elder Affair’s 2018 County Profile, 6,945 seniors in Martin County are probable Alzheimer’s cases—this number represents 15% of Martin County’s senior population.

“Memory loss affects a larger swath of our population than many people realize,” said Karen Ripper, President and CEO of the Council on Aging of Martin County. “Since opening the Kane Center in 2011, the Council has implemented a strategy to create a continuum of care and support for individuals in every point of the process, from mild cognitive impairment through late stages of dementia.”
