|In this issue of our CareNotes Newsletter, we discuss the growing popularity of wearable fitness trackers and how they help promote regular physical activity and a healthy lifestyle. We also take a look at the efforts of the town Watertown, Wisconsin, to become more dementia-friendly. There, many businesses have trained employees in how to recognize and assist customers with dementia, a trend that is gaining momentum in Europe, Canada and other parts of the U.S. Finally, we highlight our new book, The Cognitive Therapeutics Method: Non-Pharmacological Approaches to Slowing the Cognitive and Functional Decline Associated with Dementia. Inspired by requests from patients and their family members for a well-researched guide that provides an understanding of the various causes of neurocognitive disorder—from Alzheimer’s disease to Parkinson’s disease to Frontotemporal decline, among others—and the evidence for non-pharmacological interventions to slow cognitive and functional decline, the authors are confident the book will be an important contribution to neurocognitive care and aging literature. Last, but not least, I would like to congratulate our Caregiver of the Month, Dania Torees-Reyes form Home Care Assistance of Denton, TX. Dania’s spirit and passion for caregiving are evident in the superior care she provides to each and every one of her clients. We are lucky to have her as a member of the Home Care Assistance.
