Maintaining the health, wellness, and safety of our residents is our number one priority. Due to the COVID-19 situation, effective immediately we are restricting visitors to our community. This is in cooperation with federal mandates regarding this situation. Letters regarding specific details are being sent to the responsible parties for our residents to provide them with more detailed information. In addition to restricting visits, our staff will be screened prior to the starting of their shifts and have been trained on the symptoms of COVID-19 as well as infection prevention techniques. This is a fluid situation and we will keep you informed as the situation changes. We appreciate your cooperation and patience. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Whether you are a faithful subscriber to our senior assisted living and memory care blog or have arrived us for the very first time, we are guessing your age is somewhere in your forties or older. People in their teens are locked down in their Twitter and Tic Toc accounts. People in their thirties and raising families and have relatively young parents. People in their forties have aging parents and they themselves might be starting to question their very own level of forgetfulness. Now, we don’t want to be Debbie Downers here today with you, but we do have some news that won’t settle well with any of you (and that includes yours truly, the author of this blog post). Some foods are particularly bad as they can contribute to forgetfulness regardless of your age. It’s all about Oxygen.
There are things that people put in their bodies that limit the amount of oxygen getting to the brain, causing it to operate at less than full capacity. Smoking has this effect and so does eating certain foods. Human body cells naturally lose their ability to carry oxygen as people age, which is why it’s important to choose foods that do not contribute to oxygen depletion.

To be clear, you senior assisted living care team and your memory care support team here at Gateway Gardens are not “outlawing” these food favorites. However, if you and/or your loved ones at home eat these foods regularly, should offset the ill effects by increasing your vegetable and fresh fruit daily. By default, if you do this, you’ll eat fewer hamburgers and pizza.
