Emergency Preparedness Month -

County, CAL FIRE and San Diego County Sheriff’s officials reminded people regionwide to have disaster and evacuation plans in place. San Diego County Sheriff Anthony Ray urged people to plan ahead and not wait until disaster strikes at a press conference to update the public about the Border 32 fire Thursday. He said people should have telephone contacts ready, as well as food, water, and prescription medications if they take them, and a full tank of gasoline in the car.  
“Have those plans ahead of time,” Ray said, “so … you can move out quickly.”

To find information about how to create a personal disaster plan, go to the County’s ReadySanDiego website at

Follow @SDSheriff and @CALFIRESANDIEGO on twitter for updates.

Time To Improve your Dementia/Alzheimer's Knowledge?

Interested in Reducing Alzheimer's Risk?

We have all read and heard about ways to maximize our brain health.  Follow the below link for an article that condenses what we have read and heard down to “6 pillars of a brain-healthy lifestyle”.  

Do you Know the early 7 signs of Dementia?

The linked article reminds us that “….persistent difficulty with memory, cognition, and ability to perform everyday tasks might be signs that something more serious (than normal forgetfulness) is happening to (our) brain”.  Discover more with the following link.

Are you a Male Solo Ager?

This article, written by a man who is a solo ager, focuses on the particular challenges faced by male solo agers.  The main emphasis is on the fact that most men don’t like to admit vulnerability or ask for help, and on how important it is to “go toward others”, rather than isolating".
