Can dementia be avoided?
There’s nothing you can do to avoid getting dementia, but you can lower your risk of developing it. By keeping your heart healthy you’ll keep your brain healthy. Eat a balanced diet, avoid cigarettes, drugs and alcohol and keep your cholesterol and blood pressure levels in check.
Stay active both physically and mentally by exercising your body and also your brain.
The good news is that according to recent research, dementia could be on the decline due to healthier lifestyle choices such as a better diet and less toxic lifestyle.
It’s because of this research that we want to create our Dementia Hub. Socialising and exercise have been proven to slow the progression of this disease and add enjoyment to the lives of people suffering from dementia. It’s also a great way to provide respite for their families and carers.
