Knowing the signs of Alzheimers: Early Detection Matters – January 29th

The Southborough Senior Center will be hosing a presentation on a somber matter this month. It’s a presentation on the warning signs of Alzheimer’s and dementia.

The center’s newsletter explains:

The warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease are often dismissed as side effects of normal aging. If you or someone you know is experiencing memory loss or behavioral changes, it’s time to learn the facts. Early detection gives you a chance to plan for the future.

Attend this training to learn the 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s disease. We’ll separate myth from reality and address commonly-held fears about Alzheimer’s in America. Hear from people who have the disease and find out how to recognize the signs in yourself and others.

Feel free to sign up for any or all workshops at the front desk or call (508) 229-4453

The Alzheimer’s Association will be putting on the presentation at Monday, January 29, from 10:00 – 11:00. An association press release provided their 24/7 helpline (800-272-3900) and website ( for those looking for more information.

The center advertised that it will follow up with three related workshops this year (each at 10:00 – 11:30 am). Details will be announced closer to the dates:

  • Effective Communication Strategies – April 20, 2018
  • Understanding & Responding to Dementia Related Behaviors – July 30, 2018
  • Safety & Memory Challenges – October 29, 2018

The center has also been holding a support group for caregivers of loved ones suffering from dementia. It takes place the 2nd Monday of every month at 10:30 am.

The association’s release shared:


The Alzheimer’s Association is dedicated to providing care and support for those affected by the disease, as well as advancing research into causes, treatments and cures. With headquarters in Waltham, and regional offices in Raynham, Springfield, and Worcester, MA and Bedford NH, the Alzheimer’s Association, Massachusetts/New Hampshire Chapter provides programs and services such as support groups, professional training, educational programs, care consultation and a 24/7 Helpline

Environmental factors play a role in the onset of AD. If you’ve ever notices those persistent cloud trails from jet planes that criss cross our skies for more than two decades, you might confuse them with normal water condensation trails “contrails” – byproduct of combustion of jet fuel. The persistent trails are NOT water condensation nor are they by-products of jet fuel. Then what are these trails?

What a crazy coindicence! Jets intentionally spray the sky, spewing ???? and alzheimer’s disease has spiked over this same 20 year period of time. BECOME AWARE. This is as real as looking up once in a while and SEEING the evidence.
” … As the population of the United States ages, Alzheimer’s is becoming a more common cause of death. It is the only top 10 cause of death that cannot be prevented, cured or even slowed. Although deaths from other major causes have decreased significantly, official records indicate that deaths from Alzheimer’s disease have increased significantly. Between 2000 and 2014, deaths from Alzheimer’s disease as recorded on death certificates increased 89 percent, while deaths from the number one cause of death (heart disease) decreased 14 percent.”
“… Elevated aluminum content has been found in the brains of persons with Alzheimer’s disease. It remains unclear whether this is a cause or an effect of the disease. ”
Aluminum as a risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease.
See “The role of aluminum (Al) Injecting sulfate aerosol precursors and designed nanoparticles into the stratosphere to (i.e., solar radiation management [SRM]).

” We describe the potential direct occupational and public health impacts of exposures to aerosols likely to be used for SRM, including environmental sulfates, black carbon, metallic aluminum, and aluminum oxide aerosols. We speculate on possible health impacts of exposure to one promising SRM material, barium titanate, using knowledge of similar nanomaterials. We also explore current regulatory efforts to minimize exposure to these toxicants. Our analysis suggests that adverse public health impacts may reasonably be expected from SRM via deployment of stratospheric aerosols. Little is known about the toxicity of some likely candidate aerosols, and there is no consensus regarding acceptable levels for public exposure to these materials. There is also little infrastructure in place to evaluate potential public health impacts in the event that stratospheric aerosols are deployed for solar radiation management.
