Dr Emer MacSweeney, Consultant Neuroradiologist, founder and CEO at Re:Cognition Health was featured on Glamour, discussing changes you can make to help reduce the risk of dementia.
Dementia is affecting more and more of us; with over 850,000 people in the UK living with the disease and millions more affected through their roles as carers, family, friends and members of the community.
Because dementia is the number one cause of death in the UK with numbers rising exponentially, research is vital in order to understand the causes of the disease and to find new treatments and ultimately a cure. Huge advancements are being made in research and every day we learn more, including important lifestyle changes that can reduce the risk of developing dementia.
From socialising and brain workouts through to improving sleep, diet and physical activity, this article in Glamour discusses some of the easy changes you can make to your everyday life to help reduce your risk of dementia.
