Hypertension Could Lead to Dementia

Angie SzumlinskiHealth, Studies

Recent studies have shown that people with hypertension in midlife have a higher risk of developing dementia. This study, although limited, may be important to you and the caregivers in your communities. Unfortunately, many of our residents are past midlife and this information may not be relevant to them. That said, it may be helpful for your staff, family members and the community as a whole. Share this information and consider having a blood pressure screening day at your center to bring in community members! What a great idea for sharing important health information while hosting an event that will educate your community on who you are and what you do! While you are at it, consider having YOUR blood pressure checked, it could save your life!
