In alignment with Alzheimer’s Disease International’s World Alzheimer’s Month, our mission is to shed light on the risk factors linked to Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias and to explore ways to reduce these risks.
Research reveals various factors that may increase the likelihood of dementia or Alzheimer’s. While they don’t guarantee cognitive decline, these factors include age, genetics, family history, lifestyle choices, and health-related risk factors like blood pressure management and smoking cessation. Additionally, caregivers face unique challenges such as heightened stress and disrupted sleep. The good news is that thoughtful consideration of these factors and even modest lifestyle adjustments can yield lasting benefits.
As avid advocates for dementia awareness, Home Instead has tailored this public education campaign to provide guidance on recognising and reducing these risks. Join us in our mission to create a world where dementia is better understood, managed, and prevented.
Early detection and understanding of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia symptoms is vital for timely intervention. Download our resource today to recognise and gain insights into these signs and support a better quality of life for your loved ones.
