Dementia is a brain disease that impacts memory, and daily performance and communication abilities. Many people are at risk of being diagnosed with dementia as they grow older, and the number of people with dementia is predicted to increase as the population ages.
While there is no cure for dementia, there are many steps people can take to reduce the risk of developing dementia later in life. Clinical trials suggest that maintaining physical activity, blood pressure control, and cognitive training all contribute to lowering the risk factor.
