In creating our Groovy, Far Out and Funkadellic flavors we knew that we couldn't lose the incredible taste of our old fashion cake donut. With that in mind each donut was created so that with every bite you would taste our fresh, warm donut, the subtle flavor of our frostings and our crazy selection of Funkadelic toppings; with no one flavor overwhelming the others. All of our stores work hard to make sure that you enjoy those flavors as we intended them from the beginning in our tiny shop.

There are currently more than 6 million Americans age 65 and older living with Alzheimer's. There are 220,000 Ohioans aged 65 and older living with Alzheimer's disease, according to the Alzheimer's Association 2023 Alzheimer's Disease Facts and Figures. That number is expected to hit 250,000 by 2025. A total of 493,000 Ohio caregivers provide 730 million hours of unpaid care each year. Age is the greatest risk factor for Alzheimer's disease. In fact, 1 in 3 seniors age 85 and older will have Alzheimer's disease. Brain Health While some brain changes are inevitable as we age, there is a growing body of research to suggest that adopting healthy lifestyle behaviors, including healthy eating, exercising regularly, not smoking and staying cognitively engaged may help us age healthier and help reduce the risk of cognitive decline. Five tips to promote better brain health and help reduce the risk of cognitive decline: Exercise regularly — Regular cardiovascular exercise helps increase blood flow to the body and brain, and there is strong evidence that regular physical activity is linked to better memory and thinking. Maintain a heart-healthy diet — Stick to a meal schedule full of fruits and vegetables to ensure a well-balanced diet. Some evidence suggests a healthful diet is linked to cognitive performance. The Mediterranean and DASH diets, which emphasize whole grains, green leafy vegetables, fish and berries, are linked to better cognitive functioning, and help reduce risk of heart disease as well. Get proper sleep — Maintaining a regular, uninterrupted sleep pattern benefits physical and psychological health, and helps clear waste from the brain. Adults should get at least seven hours of sleep each night and try to keep a routine bedtime. Stay socially and mentally active — Meaningful social engagement may support cognitive health, so stay connected with friends and family. Engage your mind by doing activities that stump you, like completing a jigsaw puzzle or playing strategy games. Or challenge yourself further by learning a new language or musical instrument. Keep your heart healthy — Recent study shows strong evidence that a healthier heart is connected to a healthier brain. The study shows that aggressively treating high blood pressure in older adults can help reduce the development of mild cognitive impairment (MCI).
