Reducing the risk of dementia

We can’t say for certain why someone develops dementia. However, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has published guidelines on how to reduce the risk of dementia.

According to the WHO, several recent studies have shown a relationship between dementia with being inactive, smoking, eating unhealthily and drinking too much alcohol.

The WHO’s guidelines advise that people can reduce their risk of dementia by:

  • Getting regular exercise
  • Not smoking
  • Not drinking too much alcohol
  • Controlling their weight
  • Eating a healthy diet
  • Maintaining healthy blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar levels

The report also associated an increased risk of developing dementia with certain medical conditions, including hypertension, diabetes, obesity and depression.

Agincare’s specialist dementia care services can make a real difference to the quality of life for people with dementia.
