It’s easier to stay active in the summer but as the season starts to change it can be more difficult to keep moving.
Walking is one of the easiest ways to exercise outside and a great way to fit in movement throughout the day. This fall, plan activities that involve walking such as apple-picking, hunting for the perfect pumpkin or simply enjoying the beautiful autumn colors in your neighborhood.
If you need more tips or support in staying active, talk with your family doctor. They can support you with your fitness goals and connect you with fitness resources.

Typically, Alzheimer’s disease begins with lapses of memory, difficulty in finding the right words for everyday objects or mood swings.
As Alzheimer’s progresses, the person may:
- Routinely forget recent events, names and faces and have difficulty in understanding what is being said
- Become confused
- Undergo personality changes
- Experience mood swings
Talk with your doctor about symptoms you or your loved one might be experiencing.

Getting screened for cancer regularly is the best way to find it early, before you have any symptoms and when treatment is likely to work best.
Alberta currently has provincial screening programs for breast, cervical and colorectal cancer.
Albertans have access to a great resource, Screening For Life, at screeningforlife.ca
There you’ll find a risk factor calculator you can use as a tool in your own health care to know your cancer risk.
Speak to your family doctor if you experience any changes or to discuss which screenings are right for you.
