Understanding Alzheimer's Disease

Signs & symptoms of Alzheimer's disease

Alzheimer's Disease is the most common form of dementia in people aged over 65. The second most common form is Vascular Dementia. Dementia is a broad term used to describe problems with memory and thinking.

 

Use your head and protect your brain

Head injury, particularly more severe injury (such as that causing unconsciousness) has been shown to be a risk factor for the development of Alzheimer’s disease.

 

What is dementia?

Alzheimer's Australia explains dementia and Alzheimer's disease in simple language.

 

Alcohol and dementia

Alcohol related dementia is, as the name suggests, a form of dementia related to the excessive drinking of alcohol. This affects memory, learning and other mental functions.

 

Mind your mind

A balanced diet will promote brain health. The link between diet and brain health is becoming increasingly recognised by health professionals. A good diet is also essential for a healthy heart. While we have known for some time that too many saturated fats and salt can cause heart disease, research now tells us that they can also increase the risk of vascular dementia.

 

Tips for keeping your memory sharp

As yet, there is no prevention or cure for dementia. However, here are a few tips for keeping your brain fit and memory sharp.  These 12 tips will help you remember things easily forgotten.

 

What are the signs of dementia?

The early signs of dementia are very subtle and vague and may not be immediately obvious. Early symptoms also vary a great deal. Usually though, people first seem to notice that there is a problem with memory, particularly in remembering recent events.

 

Warning signs of dementia

Alzheimer's Australia provides this is a checklist of common symptoms of dementia. Go through the list of the symptoms, if there are several that you say 'yes' to, a doctor should be consulted for a complete examination of the person with the symptoms.

 

Good habits for a healthy brain

he benefits associated with healthy lifestyle habits are well documented. Avoiding bad habits will help reduce your risk of dementia in later years.

 

Mind your body!

Exercise regularly - your brain will love it! There is now emerging evidence that, in addition to protecting us from heart disease, stroke and diabetes, regular exercise can reduce the risk of dementia.

 

Flex your brain "muscle" - you need to look after it!

Evidence-based research shows people who take part in intellectually stimulating activities such as reading, playing board games or musical instruments have a reduced risk of dementia.
