A recent video on CBS Morning featured CBS News chief medical correspondent Dr. Jon LaPook and Dr. Rudolph Tanzi, professor of neurology at Harvard Medical School and director of the Genetics and Aging Research Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital. In their opinion, clinical trials of medications to treat Alzheimer’s have failed because they target the early stages when in fact researchers now know that by the time someone is symptomatic for Alzheimer’s Disease, they are well past the early stage. Hence the medications don’t work. Elaine Pereira, author of ‘I Will Never Forget’, a compelling and unique memoir on dementia, believes that brain healthy habits, both physical and mental, are of key importance in regards to delaying the onset and

managing the effects of Dementia.

"It should come as no big surprise," Pereira stated, "that, quoting Dr. Tanzi, 'What's good for the heart is good for the brain'. The collective 'we' have known for decades that a diet low in fat and keeping active physically bode well for cardiac health. It is true for brain health also. In addition Dr. Tanzi sites being mentally and socially active and one more key ingredient, sleep."

"This five-prong lifestyle approach of Exercise, Diet, Social Interaction, Intellectual Stimulation and Sleep collectively increase brain synapses and the production of endorphins – or 'internal morphine' – those awesome analgesic causing peptides that hang out in our brains."

Elaine Pereira has written the one book on Dementia that no none else could write. She is a daughter who has lived the Dementia drama, an occupational therapist who understands the neurology and an unwavering caregiver. Pereira’s exclusive perspective has enabled her to produce a one-of-a-kind book about Dementia that encompasses several uniquely special approaches.

In addition, while most authors unveil theirs stories chronologically, Pereira’s memoir unfolds in dynamic and creative time shifts, revealing her mother’s decline in a “then and now” format, transitioning beautifully between past and present.

While Dementia is a serious disease not to be trivialized, Pereira believes there are humorous one-liners and anecdotes in all of life’s dramas. She blends her mother’s Dementia induced tragic mishaps, episodes of illogical thinking and agitated behaviors with tasteful hilarity as well as her ridiculous but funny remarks. The end result is a book about Dementia that is unlike any other book on Dementia ever written.

‘I Will Never Forget - A Daughter's Story of Her Mother's Arduous And Humorous Journey Through Dementia’ has received numerous, high-level industry awards. These include:

2013 Honorable Mention Reader's Favorite, Memoirs
2013 Bronze Winner Global EBook Awards, Aging Category

2012 Finalist Best New Non-Fiction USA Book Awards & Hollywood Book Festival

"So walk with your friend(s) to a local café for a light lunch," Pereira concluded, "discuss the latest news worthy topic and at the end of the day, tuck yourself in for a night of brain refreshing sleep."
