“Do you have a brain?” — asks Ronine Sharp rhetorically of who should come to her upcoming talk on the aging brain — “if you do, you should come.”
Sharp, a registered nurse for over 30 years said everyone’s brains degrade with age and with an aging population it is becoming a more common issue.
She will talk about brain health, changes in memory, slowing cognitive ability and tips on how to maintain your skills and abilities.
Recent studies find one in eight Canadians are touched by dementia and Sharp said there are things people can do to help the situation.
Her talk offers some hope, humour and empowerment.
The talk is $10 at the Bradley Centre in Coombs, Wednesday, August 24 from 1 to 3 p.m. Tickets are available at the Qualicum Beach Medicine Centre Pharmacy, Aiken & Associates across from the Seniors Centre in Parksville and the Coombs General Store.
