As we age, it’s not unusual to experience a breakdown of the assembly process of memory. Adding diabetes to the normal, age-dependent loss of brain function may present an even greater challenge. Keeping this in mind, the topic for the next Mason General Hospital & Family of Clinics Shelton Diabetes Support Group is “Keeping Your Memory Active.” The meeting is set for Thursday, December 17, 2015 from 1 to 2 p.m. in the Pershing Room at Mason General Hospital.
Speaking on this subject will be MGH&FC’s Diabetes Wellness Center Director Sue Barwick, R.N., BSN, C.D.E, who will discuss the importance of keeping diabetes under control, with tips to help maintain normal brain function and an active memory. Time will be set aside for questions and answers, and family members/significant others are encouraged to attend in support of their loved ones managing diabetes.
The Shelton Diabetes Support Group, affiliated with the American Diabetes Association, meets at MGH every third Thursday of the month from September to June. It is free and open to people with type 1 and 2 diabetes, their friends, and family. For more information call Sue at (360) 427-7332.
