Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Aggarwal "I often say to people, especially when I'm diagnosing Alzheimer's, I don't really want to talk about what you can't do. Let's talk about what you still can do, and how we can keep you doing what you can do. And I think for many people they understand that, and they feel a little bit more comfortable. And that's setting, Ok. We're going to maintain where I'm at right now. And we're going to do everything we can to achieve that goal. Our population is aging rapidly. We know that. And it's going to continue to do that. And as it does, we are seeing now people who make it to the age of 85 with no cognitive issues, and they live another 10 years doing very, very well. So these people are called the super-agers. And we're trying to understand what is it about them that allows them to live such vibrant lives cognitively, and also with really good mobility and physical functioning. I always stress with all of my patients - whether or not they have Alzheimer's or not - is prevention. We are now looking at cardiovascular risk factors. How do they somehow either maybe bring on the disease earlier or set a person up, if you will, for having issues that may be related that, down the road, could lead to the disease."
