I think it may but when I visit the memory care unit not many residents are overweight. I have visited for about 5 years & i take snacks. Through those 5 years only a few have been diabetic so are not allowed many sweet treats.

There has been some good research the role that overeating and being overweight can play in connection with Dementia.. We know lots of fruits and veggies with grains is healthy.. so with people's diets being not so healthy..it could be some truth to it

...I know it is a monster

There are a few residents in the memory care that I visit that seem to have very regular visitors. A few seem to have no one. The lady that I visit & take things to was transferred from a nursing home that is a few hours away. She has no known relatives. I still wonder if she might have a neighbor that might decide to visit her. With the HIPPA law you would not be told anything about a friend. She remembers little to nothing about her past. A few years ago she told me about her family but she doesn't remember it now. It is the strangest thing, she knows things like names of movie stars & old songs & rhymes. She can do puzzles. It is sad how this disease can take away your memory.

I am glad there are some facility's that give good care.
