Risk Factors

The Better Health Channel tells us: "Dementia cannot yet be prevented or cured, but the choices you make in midlife can help to keep your brain healthy as you age. Studies of large groups of people show that those who adopt a 'brain healthy' lifestyle have a reduced risk of dementia in later life. Staying physically and mentally active, eating well and avoiding smoking, excessive alcohol and head injury may all protect you from dementia later in life. Get regular check-ups from your doctor."
