Prevention of dementia
Dementia is a syndrome in which memory, thinking, behavior and the ability to perform daily activities deteriorate. Nearly 10 million new cases of people with dementia are registered each year. Dementia has a physical, psychological, social and economic impact not only on patients, but also on their carers, families and society as a whole. Dementia is a syndrome in which cognitive function is impaired – the ability to process thoughts – beyond what is expected in normal aging.
What you can do daily to prevent dementia:
- New walks – to change routes, to choose new directions. It is necessary to stimulate the brain constantly by doing new and new things to break the routine;
- Proper diet – Mediterranean diet can delay, stop, improve by several years the onset of the first symptoms of dementia;
- Play all kinds of board, online games, solve crossword puzzles and most of all, arrange all kinds of wooden puzzles.
1 in every 3 cases can be prevented with proper prevention!
