Healthwatch: Tips for Lowering Your Risk of Dementia

There's no effective treatment for dementia, which affects 50 million people worldwide, but the World Health Organization (WHO) says there's much that can be done to delay or slow the onset and progression of the disease.

In May, WHO issued the following recommendations to reduce the risk of dementia globally, and combat cognitive decline:

  • Regular physical exercise
  • Don't use tobacco
  • Drink less alcohol
  • Maintain a healthy blood pressure
  • Eat a healthy diet, particularly Mediterranean foods
  • Avoid dietary supplements such as Vitamins B and E

WHO said there are 10 million new cases of dementia every year, and this figure is set to triple by 2050. The disease is a major cause of disability and dependency among older people and "can devastate the lives of affected individuals, their careers and families," the organization said.
Although the report stressed that social participation and social support are strongly connected to good health and individual well-being, it said there was insufficient evidence linking social activity with a reduced of risk of dementia. 

Experts said that the advice issued by WHO was comprehensive and sensible, but some cautioned that the evidence that these steps would reduce dementia risk was not always strong.
"Keep on doing the things that we know benefit overall physical and mental health, but understand that the evidence that these steps will reduce dementia risk is not strong," Robert Howard, a professor of old age psychiatry at University College London, told the Science Media Center.

"Like many colleagues, I already tell my patients that what is good for their hearts is probably good for their brains."

Planning for Long-Term Care

Many people dont know that over 69% of people turning 65 this year will need some sort of long-term care at some point in their retirement. Our firm specializes in planning for and managing retirement for private and institutional clients, and our clients often require advanced planning to protect their assets. First of all, its important that you have an elder law attorney. Elder law is a niche area of legal practice covering estate planning, wills, trusts, retirement healthcare planning and protection of assets. A good elder law attorney can help advise you on all these areas. The right planning starts with the right documents, especially the Power of Attorney. The power of attorney law changed in Ohio in 2012 to the Uniform Power of Attorney Act, and many powers of attorney documents dont conform with this legislative change. We highly recommend for anyone with a power of attorney written prior to March of 2012, that you have that document reviewed to determine if it meets the new

Often times, credit unions grow up around a community, or a place of business, and the PSE credit union is no exception. The PSE Credit Union has been around since 1955, and originally started as the Parma City Employees Credit Union, and now, anyone can become a member. Many people understand the difference between credit unions and big banks, but what is it specifically that sets them apart? At the PSE Credit Union, its that they are a not-for-profit business, as opposed to the big banks, which are for profit. Instead of having to appease their shareholders, their goal is to serve their members. In their eyes, whats best for a banks shareholders isnt always best for the customers as a credit union, whats best for theircustomers their primary goal. This can often translate to better service and member satisfaction. For example, according to the most recent annual American Customer Satisfaction Index, credit unions scored an average of 86% for customer satisfaction, while the average

Investment Directions - Staycation or Vacation? Sell in May and go away is an old maxim for investors. Evidence is mixed on its validity, but given this years rally, the temptation now is understandable. Our take: consider taking some profits and rotating into exposures that offer more resilience if volatility returns. Think of it as the investor version of a staycation and catch up on chores. With that in mind, our take on the major investor themes for the weeks ahead: U.S. Equities: Reverting to Technology We remain overweight U.S. equities, and one of our favored sectors is technology. Even with strong performance this year, we believe the sector remains appealing. Technology firms tend to have strong balance sheets and enjoy support from longer-term trends, attractive qualities in a late economic cycle. Furthermore, tech stocks have historically fared well through various yield curve regimes. Developed Markets: Europe Poised for Revival? Investors in Europe have had little reason
