Alzheimer's Fight: Still Me

Alzheimer's Fight: Still Me
Rebecca Cobb

Living with Alzheimer's can be challenging, but lifestyle changes play a crucial role in maintaining cognitive health. Regular physical exercise, a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and omega-3 fatty acids, staying mentally active through puzzles or learning new skills, socializing, and managing stress can all help preserve cognitive function. These changes may not stop the progression of Alzheimer's, but they can significantly improve quality of life and potentially delay symptoms.

About Our Guest

Alzheimer's is scary. But you can still find ways to be you after the diagnosis.

Rebecca Chopp never expected a routine annual checkup to uncover symptoms that ultimately revealed she has early-stage Alzheimer's disease. The news was devastating. 

After recovering from the shock and grappling with the changes Alzheimer's meant for her life plans, Rebecca knew the next steps: retire from her stressful job leading the University of Denver, hold on to the core of herself for as long as possible, and find ways each day to live well so that her remaining time with her family and friends can be as rich and meaningful as possible.

This honest and hope-filled book--Still Me--chronicles Rebecca's efforts, with the help of her family, friends, and medical team, to reshape her life for a healthy and vibrant approach to living with Alzheimer's, showing that an illness does not define us. Rebecca also provides thoughtful questions, encouragement, and suggestions for those living with Alzheimer's, their caregivers, and those who fear the diagnosis.
