November Mended Hearts: Connecting Cardiovascular Disease and Dementia

Older people with heart problems may be at greater risk for mental changes that are thought to signal the beginnings of a type of dementia. One study shows that women with heart problems were about three times more likely to develop dementia than women without heart concerns.

Join us for a free Mended Hearts meeting with Spenser Eisenberg, DO, and learn more about the connection between heart disease and vascular dementia. The meeting will take place at UHS Wilson Medical Center, Picciano 4, Room 5ABC, on Monday, November 24, at 6:30 p.m. (meeting begins); 7 p.m. (presentation begins).

Mended Hearts offers hope and educates patients about cardiovascular health, empowering them as they manage a heart-healthy lifestyle. Not a member? Join us and make a difference in the lives of heart disease patients and their families. Mended Hearts is free and open to the public. For more information visit or call 785-1017.
