One of the biggest global public health challenges in history is that of dementia.
With no treatment or cure currently available for dementia, prevention is our best option.
A number of risk and protective factors for dementia are already known. Since the disease process generally begins 20-30 years before the symptoms become apparent, it is never too early or too late to implement targeted strategies to prevent or delay symptoms.
Better Brain. Better Life Booklets
The following educational booklets about modifiable lifestyle factors associated with dementia are part of a series of four booklets developed as a supplement to CHeBA’s Better Brain. Better Life public forums.
They have been made possible through the generous support of Genworth Australia.
