Dementia is the loss of cognitive function

Some people with dementia cannot control their emotions, and their personalities may change. Dementia ranges in severity from the mildest stage, when it is just beginning to affect a person’s functioning, to the most severe stage, when the person must depend completely on others for basic activities of daily living, such as feeding oneself.

Dementia affects millions of people and is more common as people grow older.

Preventive health screenings help people

Preventive health screenings help people

Preventive services are important for everyone, especially for older adults. This is because your risk for health problems increases as you age. By preventing problems, or identifying them early, you are more likely to live a longer, healthier, and more satisfying life.

What are preventive services? Many physicians follow service guidelines from the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force. This expert panel reviews research and advises doctors about which preventive services you need depending on your age, medical history, and family history. Preventive services include screenings, vaccinations, and health advice.

Arches

Double O Arch

The second largest arch within the Devils Garden area. As the name implies, there are two arches here, one large, with a
span of 71 feet, stacked atop a much smaller arch with a 21-foot span. It was formed by downward water erosion from atop the sandstone, rather than from side-to-side water erosion.

Spinach & Artichoke Dip Pasta

Ingredients:

8 ounces whole-wheat rotini
1 (5 ounce) package baby spinach, roughly chopped
4 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese, cut into chunks
¾ cup reduced-fat milk
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for garnish, if desired
2 teaspoons garlic powder
¼ teaspoon ground pepper
1 (14 ounce) can artichoke hearts, rinsed, squeezed dry and chopped (see Tip)

Directions:
Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain. Combine spinach and 1 tablespoon water in a large saucepan over medium heat.
