For most people, the end of Daylight Savings Time on Sunday, Nov. 6, means an extra hour of sleep. But for people living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia, it may accelerate the disorientation that comes with “sundowning” that can last through the winter months.

As we age, it is tempting to attribute the gradual changes our bodies go through – including changes in memory – to normal aging. There are some changes we should be more attentive to, including memory lapses that begin to affect our quality of life.
Tax
Even though tax day is behind us, many Coloradans are eligible to get even more cash back this year. Colorado families can still file their taxes to get up to $3,600 per child through the Child Tax Credit. Colorado residents can still file their state tax returns by October 17th, 2022 to make sure they get an extra $750 cash back by January 31st, 2023 through the Colorado Tax Rebate.

On Saturday, June 11th, thousands of teal-clad women, men and children will come together at Denver’s City Park for the 13th annual Jodi’s Race for Awareness benefitting the Colorado Ovarian Cancer Alliance (COCA). For survivors who have battled ovarian cancer, this showing of solidarity and support provides hope, inspiration and invaluable connections. Judy Sherman (69), who attended her first Jodi’s Race in 2019 just one month after completing her first round of chemotherapy, recalls the power of the beads. At the Race, each survivor is given a strand of beads for every year of survival since their initial diagnosis. “I looked around and saw all these women with their necks draped in beads,” recalls Sherman. “I walked up to several and asked them if I could touch their beads for luck. It gave me such strength.”
