Finding the Cure for Dementia with ‘Super Agers’

Super Agers
America is leading the hunt for a cure for dementia, and a special group of elderly men and women seem to hold the key. (Video)

Ageing. It’s inevitable. We all want to make it into our senior years, but no one wants to get there to find it’s not much fun. The greatest challenge is dementia, so the race is on to try and find better treatments, if not a cure. Australia’s 60 Minutes program reports.

America is leading the hunt, and in the above video we meet a group of elderly men and women who hold the key. They are called the “super agers” and they are taking part in the world’s largest and longest study into dementia, led by Dr. Claudia Kawas of UC Irvine.

The results are changing what we know about the disease.

This site was inspired by my Mom’s autoimmune dementia.

It is a place where we separate out the wheat from the chafe, the important articles & videos from each week’s river of news. Google gets a new post on Alzheimer’s or dementia every 7 minutes. That can overwhelm anyone looking for help. This site filters out, focuses on and offers only the best information. it has helped hundreds of thousands of people since it debuted in 2007. Thanks to our many subscribers for your supportive feedback.

The site is dedicated to all those preserving the dignity of the community of people living with dementia.
