Mayores Mejores

Helping the Latino community and their families learn more about Dementia and how to cope with it. 

CLUES Mayores Mejores

Through our Mayores Mejores initiative, CLUES aims to provide information and support to members of our Latino community who may be experiencing dementia and their caregivers who are looking to learn more about caring for their loved ones. Our goal is to facilitate an outlet for families who want to connect with the community and find a support system.

If you or a loved one is prone to Dementia, the Mayores Mejores program can be beneficial through its group support, group activities, social connections, and education workshops that can promote awareness and activities to help maintain cognitive functions and social relationships.

What is Dementia?

Dementia is a general term for a severe impairment of mental capacity that interferes with daily life. Memory loss is one example. Alzheimer's is the most common type of dementia. 

For more information, please visit the Alzheimer’s Association website. 

How can I prevent dementia?

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), these are some of the recommendations to reduce the risk of Dementia 

  • Exercise regularly 
  • Do not smoke 
  • Avoid excessive use of alcohol 
  • Control body weight 
  • Follow a healthy diet  
  • Keep blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol at appropriate levels 

Latinos More Likely to Develop Dementia. Why?

According to the Alzheimer's Association, Latinos are at higher risk of Alzheimer's and dementia. Due to extended life expectancies and a higher prevalence of cardiovascular disorders including high blood pressure and high cholesterol, the Latino community has a higher chance of developing some kind of dementia in comparison to other demographic groups.
