Medical Professionals Inform People on World Alzheimer's Day
Wednesday was World Alzheimer's Day and local medical officials wanted to warn people to seek medical help if you know someone who could have the symptoms of the disease.
Bill Rogers is a Physician Assistant at the Los Fresnos Clinic and sees around four to five Alzheimer's patients. He reminds spouses and family members that elderly people in their family should get checked for Alzheimer if they show signs of aggressiveness and do not perform everyday activities like combing their hair or dressing properly.
He stated, "They see these changes they should get into a doctor, there is help and natural preventatives kind of measures that will be helpful."
Alzheimer's is the sixth leading cause of death in the country and the only cause of death among the top 10 in the United States that cannot be prevented.
