1. Brain Trauma & Alzheimer’s Alzheimer's Caregivers 1:12:55

Brain trauma is a topic that the host of Nooks & Crannies podcast knows all too well. Matt joins Jen in this episode to talk about brain trauma, brain health and a little bit about how podcasts can change the world!

I’ve personally had at least one, probably two concussions. That’s enough to worry me about the possibility that I’ve increased my risk of developing Alzheimer’s. My family history is enough risk. It’s not completely clear if there is an increased risk of cognitive impairment from one or two concussions. That’s still being researched.

My guest, Matt, from the Nooks & Crannies podcast has sustained 20 plus concussions. He’s probably lost count if we’re being honest. At 37 he does have warning signs of brain trauma that could lead to early cognitive impairment. We discuss how he got so many head injuries and how they are currently affecting his life.

Here’s an episode they did on the same topic!

More “Brain Stuff” Talk

After helping care for her grandmother who had vascular dementia, Jennifer realized her Mother was showing signs of early onset Alzheimer’s. After the death of her father in 2017 Jennifer went searching for answers to many of the common questions and Alzheimer’s caregiver faces. Being a busy entrepreneur Jennifer realized that a podcast would be the easiest way to learn more about caregiving while completing other tasks.

Sadly, in late 2017 she only found one and it didn’t quite address what she was looking for, so she did the next best thing, and started her own. The Fading Memories podcast is now in it’s fourth year and despite the death of her Mom in March 2020, Jennifer is still talking to caregivers and still learning how to be an excellent caregiver. On the podcast she discusses caregiving, brain health, self-care and how to age well.
