    The news this week is full of things to prevent dementia. There are the old standbys-working, socializing, preventing low blood sugar, not smoking etc to to stay sharp in old age.

    Some new finds: honey, moderate alcohol consumption, statins, calorie restriction, and more.

    Do you do anything to slow dementia in the person/people you care for? What alternative treatments do you use? What about yourself? Has seeing your loved one lose their past make you more willing to try treatments to slow or prevent dementia?
