The "baby boomers" who were born after World War II are aging. The average working age of employees will be 41 by the year 2008, in contrast to 35 years in 1980. The number of older people who work part-time is also increasing. Many studies are looking at the effects that different types of work have on older workers, and how to keep them safe on the job.

Living with Dementia

According to the Alzheimer Society "Research continues to show that by challenging your brain, being socially active, choosing a healthy lifestyle and protecting your head, you can help to maintain or improve your brain health.
This is something that can also help to reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease, or even help to slow its progression in people already living with the disease.
Make the committment to a healthier brain today!"
