Almost 1 in 10 people over 65 have dementia in Australia and as we age this number increases substantially.
However it’s important to remember dementia is not a normal part of ageing, and lifestyle changes like physical activity, mental stimulation, a healthy diet and good social connections can all help reduce risk and improve outcomes.
This session will explain what dementia is, it’s causes, signs and symptoms as well as how to reduce the risks.
