As part of an ongoing commitment to provide resources and support for family caregivers of those caring for aging loved ones, Senior Concerns will present a community seminar on “Diet and Memory: The MIND Diet Plan,” on Tuesday, June 28, 2016, 5:30-7 p.m. at Senior Concerns, 401 Hodencamp Road, Thousand Oaks.
This informative seminar, led by Lisa Weaver, M.S, R.D., will focus on the MIND Diet Plan, which according to researchers at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, may reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease by as much as 53 percent. You will discover what foods to favor and what foods to avoid, and how to identify food choices that emphasize plant-based and lean protein ingredients for optimum benefits and enjoyment. You’ll learn how a typical day on the MIND Diet can be easy and delicious.
Lisa Weaver, M.S., R.D., is the Director of Nutrition Services at Senior Concerns. In this role, Lisa manages the Senior Concerns’ Meals On Wheels Program and the Adult Day Nutrition Program. Lisa brings extensive experience in clinical, management, counseling, teaching and food production.
