Quit smoking

Research revealed that there are more cases of Dementia in smokers than non-smokers

Keep your head safe

Observational studies have revealed that those of suffer repeated head injuries or concussions are at great risk of Dementia.

Mind Puzzles and games

Research back in 2010 proposed that people who play mind puzzles, such as crosswords, may ward off Dementia for longer.

Healthy Lifestyle

Adopting a healthy lifestyle by eating a well balanced diet, taking regular exercise, not smoking and making sure weight, cholesterol, and blood pressure are at normal/healthy levels, is the best way to reduce risk of Dementia according to Alzheimer’s Research UK.
